KIRKUS REVIEW

These are chosen from the material submitted to the Reader's Digest -- best of the lot. The long bow for these service extravagances, that have to do with fabulous exploits of dogs, cockroaches, mosquitoes, mules, fish, cats, monkeys, snakes, pelicane, ships, watermelons -- folk lore in the making. There are yarns of Marines, sailors, soldiers, parachutists, ashore and afloat, in action, on guard detail, in the desert, in England, China, Guadalcanal, Canal Zone; hiking, riding, camouflaging, etc. etc. Paul Bunyan type of humor, imagination tautly stretched, to provide entertainment of a kind.
