Top Customer Reviews
Initially I found the writing somewhat basic. Hackworth is not a professional writer, and you can tell. But it is clearly written and grammatically correct. If at first you are a little underwhelmed, give it a chance! After the first 30 pages, I was captivated, barely able to put it down.
Also worth noting is there is a big shift in the author's perspective about 2/3rds of the way through. That takes the book from interesting to must read material.
Hack will be sorely missed by many of us. I recommend this book highly for anyone with an interest in leadership, military history, Korea, Vietnam, or just the journalist David Hackworth. It gives a well rounded picture of what built him, and who he was as a man. This book is a must read.
Important Note: Buy the paperback. Some of the hardcover volumes have a binding error. Some pages are missing and some are duplicated.
