These are unexpurgated true-to-life journals by a gifted, articulate writer. In 1942, Will Neely swiftly sized up the military life and transformed his duties into a life of gratification and sensuality. He sublimated bivouacs into nature studies, training assignments into educational opportunities, his uniform into a girl magnet, leisure into cultural development, and carved a unique place for himself in every military station for three years. Yes, he did serve in the O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services), placing his life on the line in the Orient near wars end.
