    1 thought on “A Country Such as This”

    1. i pick up older books at our library sales and keep them for 'emergencies'. i recently read this one and really liked it. its about 3 men and their families from the end of WWII to the end of vietnam. it revolves around the airforce and politics and only gets technical a little bit toward the end. an interesting perspective written in 1983

    2. I read this a long time ago, before Webb became Secretary of the Navy; and really do not recall anything about the book. Looking at other people's reviews, maybe I should read it again.

    3. A historical epic taking place during a turbulent time in America, centered around three military men. I love the way Webb uses historical events to develop his characters and the story.
