Kindsvatter takes readers inside the minds of soldiers from World War I through Vietnam, revealing what motivated them to serve, how they dealt with danger and hardship, the roles of comradeship, leadership, and belief in cause and country. The study uses memoirs, oral histories, psychological studies, and fiction to show that the wartime experiences of American soldiers are essentially the same regardless of enemy, terrain, training, weaponry, or era. Kindsvatter is a retired U.S. Army Armor lieutenant colonel, is Command Historian at the U.S. Army Ordnance Center and Schools. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
