Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Bluhm and Motley, retired U.S. Army officers, have condensed information from diverse U.S. Army publications (field manuals, pamphlets, and circulars) to offer an excellent introduction to life in the U.S. Army. This guidebook contains introductory information on U.S. Army history, organization, weapons and vehicles, dress codes, sample soldier skills, induction, basic training, and current (1994) pay scales. Because it is drawn from original army sources, The Soldier's Guidebook is more authoritative than other available sources, such as Frank Cox's NCO Guide (Stackpole, 1995. 5th rev. ed.) and his Enlisted Soldiers Guide (Stackpole, 1994. 3d ed.). Highly recommended for high school libraries and guidance counselors, public library job-skills centers, and all libraries serving new recruits in the military.-Richard Nowicki, Emerson Vocational H.S., Buffalo, N.Y.
