Westport, Connecticut and London: Greenwood Press, (2008). Hardcover. Part of the Daily Life Through History Series / American Soldiers' Lives. "Military history is usually about history's great captains or campaigns ... What is often lost in the great stories of battles and generals is the daily life of the soldiers and junior officers who occupied, in the words common at the end of the cold war, 'the tip of the spear.' What was war like from their perspective? What did they think of their military service? What was their training like? How did they and their families live? ... These and many more questions, often overlooked, are essential to understanding the experience of war. This book looks at this period and asks the simple question, What was the soldier's experience at the end of the cold war?" (preface). Size: 8vo.
