  • Once an Eagle

    Just finished reading Once an Eagle.

    Written in 1968 by Anton Myrer it follows Sam Damon. He enlists in pre World War I U.S.Army. In World War I he earns a commission and serves until after the Korean War.

    Damon tries to serve with honor and avoid the political intrigues of the officer class.

    Once an Eagle is one of the best books I've read.

    It was made into a miniseries in 1976. It Stared Sam Elliott as the main character.

    It was on the recommended reading list of one of the history magazines.
