Review quote

"Colonel Boyne's impressive compilation of the best military writing of the past five years reflects the wide range (and excellent quality) of writing on military topics. Boyne has clearly chosen his selections not only for the pleasure of their prose but also with an eye to educating readers about the most pressing military issues of our time. . . . The result is an absolute treasure trove." --Publishers Weekly on Today's Best Military Writing
