    Review quote
    "Skillfully plotted . . . tautly written . . . will stimulate thought as well as get the adrenaline flowing." --"The Wall Street Journal " "Thomas E. Ricks knows what happens at the Pentagon perhaps sometimes better than those who work there. . . . "A Soldier's Duty" . . . thrill[s] and entertain[s] while giving readers a fascinating glimpse inside a culture shrouded in secrecy."--"Chicago Tribune" "Tremendously literate and full of searing observations about life in uniform today. Best of all, it offers a great story." " --National Review" "A powerful, prophetic page-turner. A huge tell-it-like-it-is thriller of a novel that captures the U.S. military's pain and frustration in the twenty-first century. Epic storytelling that's as exciting as it is suspenseful." --Colonel David H. Hackworth (U.S. Army, ret.), author of "About Face" "Tom Ricks has done a masterly job with his first novel. His knowledge of the military, vast experience and association with military organizations, and keen insights into the military culture clearly come out in this superb book." --General Anthony Zinni (U.S. Marine Corps, ret.), former commander, U.S. Central Command "Timely and extremely relevant . . . "A Soldier's Duty" offers a fictional glimpse into what a politicized officer corps might look like, and what factions and crises it could create. It is a warning we should reflect on." --"Marine Corps Gazette"
