Khaki is More Than a Color
Doubleday & Doran Company, Incorporated, 1943 - 282 pages
"Sergeant Marsden has written a book in which every aspect of the selectee's life is explored. If you've wondered about those first lonely days when home seems far away and the top-kick a poor substitute for mother, if you've wondered why a soldier learns to love the army life. If you've wondered about Those Girls--how a colonel acts when he's off duty--what a soldier thinks about--what he does on Saturday night when he has only thirty cents in his pocket--how he feels when he gets that leave--what makes a man a seasoned veteran..." -- taken from book jacket flap.
