The Eyes of Orion: Five Tank Lieutenants in the Persian Gulf War, by Alex Vernon

Kent, Oh.: Kent State University Press, 1999. Pp. xxiv, 330. Illus, maps, diagr., append., notes, biblio., index. $32.95. ISBN:0-87338-633-7.

An unusual, but effective collective memoir by five tank officers who served in the 24th Infantry Division during the 1990-1991 Gulf War. Although less than 80 pages are actually devoted to ground operations, the work will be of value to anyone interested in armored operations. The footnotes should not be missed, as they contain a number of useful observations and comments.

Reviewer: A. A. Nofi
