There are one or two very good women military historians who use imagination, great study and research; they can put themselves in the boots of the soldier.
Stories have a special way of putting us inside the people, inside the boots of the soldiers. You're absorbed in a way a documentary or nonfiction can't do for you.
The one hit song that I have tremendous gratitude for is Boots, because it has a life of its own. It's like being identified with a brand name.
Soldiers! Forty centuries behold you!
