Hackworth, David H; Mathews, To.

Hackworth, David H; Mathews, To. A critique of American military leadership, arguing that the Pentagon's devotion to developing high-tech weapons systems has left the troops ill-prepared to fight the types of wars going on in places like Bosnia and Saudi Arabia, as evidenced by the fact that soldiers in the Gulf War were wearing Vietnam issue boots and carrying dangerously outmoded equipment.

A highly decorated veteran of the US Army, Hackworth wrote the 1989 bestseller About Face, detailing his experiences in the military and his outrage at America's blunders in Vietnam

A highly decorated veteran of the US Army, Hackworth wrote the 1989 bestseller About Face, detailing his experiences in the military and his outrage at America's blunders in Vietnam. The book launched the author on a new career as a military-affairs correspondent for Newsweek, a post that has enabled him to keep a close watch on the armed forces. Hackworth has been in the thick of the action in the Balkans, Haiti, the Persian Gulf, and Somalia.

A wake-up call for military reform, Hazardous Duty pulls no punches.

This book is a hidden jewell, tells it like it is; the REAL TRUTH about war and how (NOT) prepared we are, regardless . I hoped for more Vietnam and not so much between the wars. But he writes proficiently and doesn't get caught up in a lot of extraneous detail.

This book is a hidden jewell, tells it like it is; the REAL TRUTH about war and how (NOT) prepared we are, regardless of the BS we get from the PERFUMED PRINCES, what 'Hack' calls most of the staff Generals. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what's said in this book; the screw-ups, names named, from the top down. One person found this helpful.

In his second book "Hazardous Duty" that he co-wrote with Tom Matthews, and subtitled "America’s Most Decorated Living Soldier Reports from the Front and Tells It the Way It Is," Hackworth roams the battlefields from Bosnia to Iraq. He is the perfect veteran warrior who immediately sees all the military blunders that are foisted on the troops by the bumbling generals. The troops are the best trained and equipped soldiers in the world; the problem is those damn "Perfumed Princess" generals. Hackworth seems to overlook the fact that those damn generals are the ones.

He admitted them in a book he wrote with Tom Matthews, "Hazardous Duty: America's Most Decorated Living Soldier Reports from the Front and Tells It the Way It Is" (Morrow, 1996). But he said the regulations were wrong. Ward Just, in his introduction to Colonel Hackworth's "About Face: The Odyssey of an American Warrior" (Simon & Schuster, 1989), said, "This was the simple truth, but in the pusillanimous atmosphere of 1971, Hackworth was seen as insubordinate and treacherous.

Oh hell yes! Hack knew his stuff. The Pentagon should have used his knowledge instead of dissing him.

This book is an easy read and Hackworth lays bare a great deal of problems with our current military. He also has many solid suggestions on how to improve the system. Unfortunately, the powers that be will probably not do any of them.

My career Army son requested this. He is a history buff and found this to be just what he wanted.

Colonel Hackworth is an American Hero in my eyes. No other writer of military history or it's current state comes close to this man. It is not an easy thing to go "against the grain" like Hackworth did. His front line experience in Korea and Vietnam gives him the right to question the Army's strategy in a modern post 9/11 world. A vivid story teller that holds both the politicians and military accountable and includes solutions as to what needs to be done to correct our global strategy in these uncertain times.
I highly recommend all his works.

Perfect copy of this book.

A highly readable and informative book, the late (2005) COL Hackworth delivers the goods in a logical extension of "About Face", basically fulfilling the promise stated with its very last sentence (those of you who read it and/or have it know what it is!)Anyone who has ever been disaffected by any large, bureaucratic entity will find a kindred spirit in COL Hackworth.
