The stories of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War are in the later 200 or so pages. The Gulf War is barely mentioned, perhaps rightly because the closer in time to the present, the more difficult it is to get historical perspective. To my reading, the editorializing increases in the later half of the book, and, of course, some of one’s own treasures are barely mentioned. There is little on the importance of the studies of prisoners of war after World War II, nothing on the Vietnam-era prisoners of war, and nothing on the other engagements of the century, such as Somalia and Haiti. The Navy, with its particular stresses and horrendous losses at sea in both world wars, is not discussed, nor is the Merchant Marine. The Air Force is occasionally added to the discussion (1).
