Inhaltsangabe: A comprehensive history of NCOs, drawing on national and military archives and writings of actual NCOs, from the American Revolution to Vietnam, outlines the evolution of the organization, its increasing complexity, and its vital role in the U.S. Army.
From Publishers Weekly:
In his meticulously researched, authoritative and richly informative history of the Army's NCO corps, Fisher defines the origin of the enlisted ranks (private, corporal, sergeant) and traces the ever-changing mission of the noncommissioned officer: officer's assistant, trainer of recruits, small-unit leader in battle and other responsibilities. He demonstrates how the threat of war and the stresses of wartime expansion, particularly during the two world wars, forced the evolution of the NCO's role in the Army. Fisher, a retired U.S. Army colonel, describes the importance of the 1946 Doolittle Board, showing how it led to sweeping reforms, particularly in relations between NCOs and commissioned officers. He examines the effect of the Vietnam War--with its drug abuse, racial confrontations and fragging--on NCOs and how a postwar reappraisal led the Army to grant professional career status to its noncommissioned officer corps. Illustrated.
