IN THE MAIL: Three very different books. First, Brig. Gen. Ezell Ware’s By Duty Bound: Survival and Redemption in a Time of War, about racism in the Vietnam war. Second, Back in Action: An American Soldier’s Story of Courage, Faith and Fortitude, about the first amputee to return to active command in Iraq. And finally, Craig Symonds’ Decision at Sea: Five Naval Battles that Shaped American History. I don’t know why the publishers decided to flood my inbox with military memoirs, but they all look pretty interesting.
