About the Book

The rough, tough drill sergeant is an American icon. We have seen him in a hundred movies, turning new recruits into trained GIs. This book takes us behind the scenes and shows us the real world of the drill sergeant. These men are superbly trained athletes; they do everything they ask their recruits to do and do it better, faster, for longer, and they make it look easy. They know the Army Way, and instill it into their men. There is a human side to the drill sergeant also. These men are intensely competitive and have all the usual conflicts inherent in such a demanding job. Their training methods are harsh but effective. Slowly they build up competence and confidence in their men and a unique trust grows between sergeant and soldier. These are men you will not easily forget.
