New Book on the Street

Punchy Company is an expose of the day-to-day life lived by soldiers, sailors, and airmen, recounted with directness, feeling, and truth.  Adeptly written, this Pinncale Book Achievement Award winner describes in great detail what service in Korea looked like, sounded like, smelled like, but most of all what it felt like.  Mr. Solstad addresses the simple realities of soldier behavior in those days, both on and off duty; how their actions circumvented behavioral guardrails they would not otherwise dodge at home.  With a frankness seldom encountered, the story is told just as it happened.

This well written, frank portrayal of military life in Korea, will appeal to all who served in the era, as well as to their spouses, who might be interested in what soldiers really engaged in there.  A forthright remembrance, it will enlighten and clairify truth of the era, while providing a better appreciation of how it impacted present day Korea.

Punchy Company was recently awarded NABE’s Pinnacle Book Achievement Award in the category, biography, for 2012:
