I love memoirs and especially when they are so personally written. What the author has done is tackle issues that African American soldiers have faced and put a new face on them. And, better than any book I've seen in a long time, he shows us why the military has been so good at integration and how far they are ahead even to this day on racial issues and equality. Very simply, the author points out that the military sees people as people and are colorless. What a beautiful way to look at it. Ollen Hunt has lots of wisdom. And, he was in the military during such interesting times, i. e., the Nurnberg trials of the Nazis.
In reading the book, it affirmed what a rich life the military provides. This memoir does what a memoir is suppose to do: provide a perspective that makes the reader glad that he's in a world with an author like Hunt. I'm going to order several copies to pass along to friends. A delightful book that deserves a wide readership and thanks to Amazon for giving authors like Ollen a level playing field.
Overall, its a nice book but dryly written and presented. It was more like reading a dossier report. I am bit surprised that with all the photos presented in the book, there is not one of the author with his wife. I thought that was pretty strange.
