MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is a lot of fun to read as it discusses many military scandals (completely different from military blunders) and offers new information and insights about them..."Military Misdemeanors "is well written and an enjoyable read. It is a really great book, well worth checking out!" - Michael Koznarsky, "The Gamers Closet" (Issue 60)
"Terry Crowdy's "Military Misdemeanors" covers faux pas, bungles, acts of incompetence, and just stupidity - over seven such scandals are gathered under one cover and celebrate bungles throughout history, from Caesar to modern times. Massacres, battles fought over simple conflicts, and more are revealed in the exploration of military slips-ups, which will reach into general-interest collections as well." -"California Bookwatch" (December 2007)
"With such a variety of misdemeanors, it is hard not to find this book amusing and entertaining. Readers will certainly appreciate the lighter side of military history after reading this 320 page book." -Timothy Baghurst, "The Traveler" (October 2007)
"Terry Crowdy has not only provided us with a look at the idiots of the past, but as there are sure to be naysayers, has also provided references for all this. A well researched book on the foibles of those in the past and a book I know you will find interesting, shocking and at times appalling... A book I can highly recommend to you." -Scott Van Aken, "modelingmadness.com "(October 2007)
"According to this humourosly outrageous work, corruption, incompetence, lust and downright stupidity rule the world of politico-military policy... This is a fun read." -Colonel Gordon W. Keiser, Proceedings (February 2008)
"Whenever possible, Terry Crowdy takes an entertaining approach to his material, which starts with the battle of Thermopylae, then marches through 2,000 years of Western history, gawking all the way." -Dave Gilson, Military History (January/February 2008)
