Mr. Robertson was there. He knows what he's talking about.
Even if the book were a "page turner," the print quality is highly uneven, making some pages difficult to read. Worse yet, I found paragraphs repeated verbatim on adjoining pages, along with other typos. The copy editor and the publisher both receive a failing grade. I put the book back on the shelf after reading some 50 pages.
This is the story of young America as the clouds of war approached and the draft got closer and closer...Reads with a realism that could only come from someone who had experienced it lived through it and understood.
The gripping saga of a young man, a proud American, struggling with what he could do and what he should do as war approached. No Vietnam escapism in this generation of Americans....They did what they had to do, the only question was how they were to do it---how they were to serve, even if they didn't want to...
A heartwarming, moving,chilling, sometimes humorous, story of a young man's road to war, as only Brewster Milton Robertson could tell it...Compares very favorably with "A Posturing of Fools," his best work so far---and this may, in time, eclipse even that fine work.
The story of a young man's journey to adulthood in the face of uncertainty and war. And, yes, there is sex, plenty of sex, a staple of Robertson's writing. It helps carry but doesn't overwhelm the story.

Gone to Graveyards is an epic portrayal of a young man's journey into adulthood during the Korean War era. Faced with an unsatisfying job, a dysfunctional marriage, and a looming national draft, Collier Boyd Ramsey finally decides to join the Army in an attempt to take some control over his life. With the goals of becoming an officer and somehow avoid being sent into combat, Ramsey quickly discovers he has little control over what life and the military have planned for him. Finally, after nearly a year of Army training schools, as an enlisted man, and various romances that seem to fall into his lap, his commission finally comes through. Unfortunately, he soon gets hit with the dreaded orders to Korea, where he sees, firsthand, the horrors of war.
An interesting story about a young man's many life experiences and romances. I recommend this book to any adult who enjoys reading military fiction, or reading historical fiction that is set during the Korean War era.
