The Uncensored War of Bedouin Bob and the All-Americans
At the foxhole level, war imprints an indelible mark that is invisible to historians who focus on commanders at headquarters directing the sweeping movements of troops. A real, raw and fresh perspective is enclosed in this personal journal of what it’s like to go through a war. Preserved in writing are the experiences and insights of those in all branches of the service who participated, especially those motivated, dedicated volunteers in the Airborne infantry who endured the hardships of the Sand Box, carried with them a cherished reminder of home and leaned on each other to perform their duty with what Hemingway called grace under pressure. Inclusion in such fellowship must be earned, not bestowed, even for those whose mission was to write it down.
