KIRKUS REVIEW

These nine short stories, of World War II and Korea, have already had the S.E.P. seal of popular approval and for the most part center on stress situations. There's The Lost Company which without ammunition still succeeds in delaying a German advance; the naive Lieutenant who teaches seasoned soldiers more than one approach to adversity; the Chaplain who proves to be a real Captain, etc., etc. Except for a trace of romance and humor, the accent is on action -- the designation -- men and boys.
