KIRKUS REVIEW

The ""modern"" army is the army which is prepared for any type of war, and this briefing is primarily for those who are serving-or will have to serve. Col. Kleinman and Mr. Horowitz, an associate editor of the Army Times, give preliminary instruction on the Russian military threat; on the various commands, their logistics and functions; on the breakdown into divisions and subunits; on equipment from the rifle- the basic weapon-to various types of artillery; on training and education, ""brains"" as well as ""muscle""; on the National Guard and ROTC and The Reserve; with a closing hup hup on moral force, or will, essential. There is an opening tribute to the ground combat soldier, a final salute to all mothers who must be prepared to sacrifice their sons. A basic handbook.
