More praise for The Rise and Fall of an American Army

“Stanton captures vividly . . . the ferocity of the fighting. At times, his descriptions make you think he’s writing about the bloody front in World War I . . . . [This book] provides fresh confirmation that . . . in battle after battle, American troops fought with incredible courage.”
The American Spectator

“Stanton has written by far the best book yet published about U.S. soldiers and marines in combat in Vietnam. . . . His word pictures of the violent encounters of that war are clear, evocative and authentic.”
ARMY magazine

“A lasting tribute to the men who fought and died in Vietnam. Those who served there–and those who would understand those who served there–owe [Stanton] an enormous debut of gratitude.”
from the foreword

“This is one of those books every infantryman should own.”
Infantry magazine
