This is the definitive work on one of the least studied aspects of military history -- the non-commissioned officer. Since colonial America, NCOs have played pivotal roles in the administration, training, morale, and fighting effectiveness of the Army. The author traces the evolution of NCO duties; their rank and insignia; relationship to officers; their training (or non-training); and the professional development scheme initiated after the Vietnam experience which produced the finest non-commissioned officer corps in the world.

Throughout the military history of the United States, the noncommissioned officer (NCO) has played a pivotal central role in the shaping and development of the U.S. Army. Indeed, many consider the rank of First Sergeant to be the "backbone" of the Army. During peaceful times, NCO's develop, train, and apply constructive discipline to those who are entrusted to their care and leadership. And it is in wartime that the true value of the NCO, especially those with the rank of First Sergeant, shines forth. It is during time of war that the First Sergeant assumes an even greater responsibility for the soldiers that he leads into battle. There are many fine examples of First Sergeants that have served our country with extraordinary courage, talent, and dedication. "The First Sergeants" gives the reader a true firsthand glimpse of how the skill, discipline, and determination of talented senior NCOs was crucial in the breaking of the will of the Eastern Communist Block. "The First Sergeants" follows the experiences of how a special breed of 1980's peacetime NCOs and First Sergeants of the U.S. Army endured physically and mentally exhausting field exercises. These frequent field exercises were born by a unique class of U. S. Army warrior known as "Cavalry." Morgan is meticulous and spells out in fascinating detail the grueling field ops and maneuvers, the demanding selection processes, and the high-level technical training involved in keeping a peacetime front-line army on the cutting edge of the operations of the art of war. Morgan's extensive knowledge and understanding of what a First Sergeant must accomplish on a day-to-day basis is absolutely stunning and his ability to share that knowledge with the reader is truly enlightening. From the simulated battle problems that test everything to the smallest detail of handling junior enlisted personal issues, this book chronicles in great detail an important part of the career of an exemplary professional senior NCO of the Army. Documenting the worth many times over of the U.S. Army's First Sergeant, "The First Sergeants" is a fascinating story of recent Cold War history. Senior NCO's, like the author, who lived and served during that time were the "tip of the spear" that ensured that the Cold War ended in the most peaceful of all imagined settings. Indeed, the world will be forever indebted to those who held the Communist hordes at bay while holding the "red" line. That they did so in bitterly cold rain, choking hot dust, in daytime and nighttime, 24/7 is a tribute to the steadfast resolve of the First Sergeant and the men that they lead. This in-depth account of a snippet of time in the life of a First Sergeant underscores the ability and dedication to duty that have been the hallmarks of the careers of many U.S. Army First Sergeants. Their careers have served to exemplify the enhanced quality, education, and professionalism of the NCO corps. Once you begin to read "The First Sergeants," you will find it very hard to put down.
