West Pointer and Vietnam veteran Carhart has written an excellent combat narrative in the classic mode. It covers the record of the U.S. First Armored Division in the Persian Gulf War. While clearly trying to honor the division's genuine achievements, Carhart does not overlook failures of both equipment and the human element. He also includes memorable scenes of soldiers and their families in Germany, where the latter had to hold the fort while the former went off to the Middle East. Even though he focuses on a single division, Carhart adds considerably to our knowledge of the war and of the revived American army. Roland Green
