5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Readable History, August 13, 2004
This review is from: American Soldier (Hardcover)
Obviously, the "reviewers" who criticized this beautifully written blockbuster had political axes to grind. They couldn't have read the same book I did. General Tommy Franks is NOT repeat NOT political; he deals out praise and finds fault (with himself as well) even-handedly. But more importantly, he reports living history in a seamless, accurate flow--from combat in the paddies of Vietnam, through the tense nuclear-standoff of the Cold War to the day-by-day, order-by-order account of the War on Global Terrorism. Franks was a brilliant commander, creative, often a maverick. He was never a yes-man and often clashed with Donald Rumsfeld and his narrow-minded political appointees. Franks won all the battles; the Pentagon came close to losing the war. If you want to learn how our military can weather the current Iraq crisis and continue to protect our country from a dedicated and skillful enemy, read this remarkable book. I recommend it to all!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Into the Mouth of the Cat, July 15, 2004
I just re-read Into the Mouth of the Cat by the military historian, Malcolm McConnell. It is an undisputed classic--undisputed execpt for that jerk Amazon reviewer from Ft. Campbell, KY who stated, erroneously, in 2001 that Mcconnell "never served." He served as an Army enlistedman in 1957-58, but more importantly, he served as a civilian intelligence officer in the Congo in the 1960s and in Vietnam. I know because I was there with him. Unlike Ft. Campbell, McConnell knows what combat is. His book shows this.
