Colonel David H. Hackworth, the maverick military hero and war correspondent, has earned over 70 awards for heroism as well as eight purple hearts. More than any other military commentator, he has the trust and confidence of the millions of soldiers -from foreign armies as well as our own.Hazardous Duty is a real-life, hard-hitting nonfiction thriller set in the ruins of Bosnia and the sands of Saudi Arabia, the deadly alleys of Mogadishu and the teeming streets of Port-au-Prince. Colonel Hackworth returns from these new American battlefields to report that the Pentagon is wasting hundred of billions of dollars gearing up to fight the wrong kind of wars, and offers a tough-love critique of American military leadership, interpreting the new post-Cold War conflicts.More

It's not "About Face"
I read this book when it first came out in the 90's and loved it. I was hoping Hack would be able to put a little extra in to make it worth getting on audio. Unfortunately, the production was half-assed and Hack seemed too tired to read his own book. That took a lot away from the story.
I still love books about war and the military, and this book is good if you read the original.
I would LOVE if they'd have Ray Porter read "About Face." Since Colonel Hackworth is dead, there will be no more books, articles or performances.
There is little I'd cut out, I would ADD the rest of the book that weren't read like the parts about Haiti and Croatia.
I can't stress enough that I am a big fan of David Hackworth. It's just that this audiobook was produced, edited, and performed badly. Hack just sounded tired and un-involved with his own book.
