Jim Alter was a sophomore in college when Japan attacked the United States. He enlisted, and after an Army programme that condensed years of officer training into a few frantic months, was flying over Europe, dodging German gunners in a B-24.

His memoir focuses on the business of turning citizens into soldiers, and in so doing highlights the tremendous benefits of asking all citizens to sacrifice for the war effort.Because everyone knew that we cadets were on the fast track toward becoming officers, we were looked at with something less than enthusiasm by most of the Tyndall Field people ... To accomplish this admirable goal, the focus was primarily on teachingjust two skills. ... It was a lot harder than swinging a shotgun manually.
