SOLDIER BOY - "An Everyman story for those who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s ... Soldier Boy is a memoir, sometimes a highly personal one, a coming of age [tale], told with complete candor, laying out everything for all to see - good, bad, silly, sad - every emotion laid bare. Bazzett doesn’t try to defend his actions too much, and he doesn’t mince around with his faults either It's well-crafted, invigorating, interesting, and fun!"
