Reviews about Hazardous Duty (7):
KiddenDan
Jack Singlaub defines "been there, done that" in the shadowy world of OSS and special warfare. This is the story behind the story of the clash between the free world and totalitarianism told from an eye-witness perspective. I heard GEN Singlaub speak in person in 1978 and have never forgotten his passion for America or his earnestness and candor. Not for everyone, but it is a great source of information about the true nature of American geopolitics during the latter half of the 20th century.

An important history that is well written.
Nothing personal
More than I ever knew about Gen. Singlaub & I have admired him for many years.

This is an outstanding book about an Army officer who was not politically correct. Unfortunately, a clueless and naive politician terminated this "dirty-boots" soldier's career. We need more Singlaubs in our military today and we need namby-pamby politicians to stay out of their way. Had Reagan been the President instead of Carter, Singlaub would have been promoted. A fascinating read of a man who sacrificed for his country and paid the price. Not only does this book give great insights into the war in Europe from behind the lines, it chronicles the start of our agencies mobilized to fight a new kind of armed political aggression by the communists. Want to read what happened on the ground in the early days of the OSS / CIA; this is the book. Two thumbs up!

A great story about a model Major General in todays world. If you want a great war story about the story of a Stand and Deliver Man. Then go no further! I actually felt sorry when the Clueless James Earl Carter went up against this bandsaw of a man!

I have read about two-thirds of this book and must stop to send copies to my friend and to my daughter. General Singlaub's experiences and insights show the pattern in all the seemingly unrelated events between WWII and Viet Nam (that's as far as I've gotten), events that affected us all. I have been angry, amazed, amused, impressed and proud as I've read this book. I agree with the other reviewer: this should be the text for a history class. General Singlaub's integrity and intelligence illuminate many issues that were hidden in the shadows.
An insightful look into the subject.
