SOLDIER BOY - "Bazzett's story is anything but dry military history ... I was so impressed by the sheer degree of his recall and the graphic quality of his memories ... And he purposely avoids the smoke and mirrors of his trade. Instead he recreates the experience of army life essentially through the eyes of the boy he was in the 60s ... But this is far more than just a story about the US Army ... [It's] simply a helluva good story!"
