KIRKUS REVIEW

Chamberlain, a retired Air Force brigadier general, writes crisply about action, with a certain you-are-there excellence and authentic dialogue. His stories center on men under stress; old war dogs and green recruits, cowards, brave men and neurasthenics; and the settings are from the European, Pacific and Korean theaters of war. The essential question for the central character of each story is the eternal question those facing military duty ask themselves: how to behave under fire? The failures are more than balanced by the successes and the courage in conflict comes over in good old fashioned storytelling.
