THE SERGEANT SAYS by Sgt. Jimmy Cannon


Email this review


Here in book form is the material that ran as a column in PM, good, genuine, casual army talk, but keyed more to the interests of the people who want to know about Army life from the outside, rather than for the soldier market. He has an ear for the lingo, a genuine love of people, he writes now with tough mug sentiment, now almost lyrically, of the Army and the boys, What they feel and think, like and dislike, do and shouldn't do, personal anecdotes, impressions, conversations. He included tips about leaves, passes, visitors, soldier ways and prejudices.
