The experience of today’s U.S. Army infantryman is explored in Mud Soldiers by George Wilson. In 1987, Wilson followed the progress of an infantry company from basic training to their first war exercises. Mr. Wilson was a witness to the rigors of basic training and the boredom of life at a military base. He uses this experience along with his expertise as the chief military correspondent for the Washington Post to suggest methods to reform the military training system. close
