    Today's Goat, the West Point cadet finishing at the bottom of his class, is temporary celebrity among his classmates. But in the 19th century, he was something of a cult figure. Custer's contemporaries at the Academy believed that the same spirit of adventure that led him to carouse at local taverns motivated his dramatic cavalry attacks in the Civil War and afterwards. And the same willingness to accept punishment from Academy authorities also sent George Pickett into the teeth of the Union guns at Gettsyburg. The story James S. Robbins tells goes from the beginnings of West Point through the carnage of the Civil War to the grassy bluffs over the Little Big Horn. The Goats he profiles tell us much about the soul of the American solider, his daring, imagination and desire to prove himself against high odds.

    The author, an Annapolis graduate and Vietnam veteran, was the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs during Desert Shield/Desert Storm, and uniquely positioned to observe the deployment and performance of the National Guard and Reserve units so vital to our efforts in the Gulf. He examines the Reserves as essential to the Total Force, and in the context of politics, outside of which the policies cannot be understood. Of particular note is his discussion of the two National Guard roundout brigades, which were activated but not deployed for the Gulf War, and the implications for future deployments.

    Writing in a chatty, sometimes anecdotal style, Clark gives us the most detailed popular history available of the U.S. Marines in World War I. With a maximum strength of 75,000, the corps sent only two brigades to France. Only the Fourth Marine Brigade saw combat, and in France the "Devil Dogs," as the Germans nicknamed them, were a long way from their parent organization, the navy, and close to the army, which did not like marines. Clark provides a detailed account of the marines' most famous action, the battle of Belleau Wood, as well as the other six major battles in which they fought.
