The reality of life tends to slap some of us around: some fall down, some stand tall. Mr. Mansker stands tall as he relates his wartime experience to the reader with his dry wit, slightly sentimental heart and bright honesty that makes this book very different from others whose authors shared the era. This is not a criticism of others, but a note that 'A Bad Attitude' can be approached with a middle of the road point of view and a warning that those who do so will most likely grab firmly ahold of the vine that is swinging to the left as it goes by.
