    Making of a Marine Officer

    As a former Marine officer from the 60's, I could both identify with the author's point-of-view and experiences. Attitudes toward leadership and responsibility are still the same. Lots of the training is different. Former Marine's will enjoy the book as an updating about preparation for war as done today, and the war from a small unit leader's role.

    Outstanding Read

    Nathaniel Fick did a great job when he wrote One Bullet Away. he makes you feel like you are in the war in Iraq with his platoon, and he keeps you informed about anything and everything when it happens and why. Fick was a writer of interest after he wrote this book. Nathans page of accomplishments is very long and very impressive. i liked this book alot for the fact that he takes you with him on his journey through the United States Marine Corps. Overall, i would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about war, adventure, and success.

    Oooh Rah!

    Good stuff! I read this book in three sittings. A hundred times better than that train wreck of a book 'Jarhead'.

    Great Book

    I picked up this book not knowing what to expect but came away with a new found respect for military. Having grown up in a military family all my life I could really relate to the experiences in the book. It really shows what it truly means to serve this country. Highly recommended

    Great Read!

    Bought this book, honestly b/c it was on sale at B&N. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Very easy to relate to the author!
