Book Review: Army 101

A review of Army 101: Inside ROTC in a Time of War has been posted in the book reviews section of the site. In the book, author David Axe provides an examination of the University of South Carolina’s ROTC unit, the Gamecock Battalion. Axe terms the ROTC cadets “undergrads with guns” and explores the challenges they face, the reasons they enlist, and the day-to-day experiences of life in the ROTC. While short and fairly uncritical of the ROTC, Axe’s book does offer a useful exploration of the ROTC.
