"Every single veteran I know struggles adjusting to college life, here is the solution." -Samuel Brooks, Army Ranger, Bronze Star, Purple Heart Recipient
"A slim and motivating volume for veterans about to head off for school" -Kirkus Reviews
"This is a how-to book like I have never seen before. I was not and am not a veteran who faced the prospect of going to college but if I was, I would want to own this book. The author seamlessly offers his personal experience with a rich story craft that makes the book so readable. If you are a veteran with the GI Bill available but don't know what to do, buy this book and go to school....This is the best book for any veteran who is in school or planning on going. A fantastic book. 5 Stars" -N.N. Lights Book Heaven
"There are many issues that veterans have when they leave the military and decide to go forward and pursue higher education. Combat to College is the perfect companion to take with you to assist you in that learning journey. I could relate to many issues because I went back to college when I got out of the Army, was married, and had two children. Even though this book is aimed at today's veterans, I still could relate, decades later!". -MWSA Review
"Fueled by personal experiences, Army Staff Sergeant John H. Davis gives some really great advice on what to do and what not to do when you are a veteran trying to go back to school amongst civilians....Davis teaches that constantly evaluating oneself, pushing to the limits, and reaching outside of your comfort zone is where success lies." 5 Stars -Manhattan Book Review
"Combat To College by John H. Davis is an elegant, astoundingly clear guide to the successful completion of college-level studies, specifically directed at military veterans, who face perhaps the most difficult journey of any to achieve that coveted degree....Mr. Davis not only shows how to make successful transition to self-control in a college world but goes even further by demonstrating precisely how to tap into all the strength gained through military service and apply them....Whilst this book speaks to military veterans, make no mistake; the lessons, mindsets, and planning strategies laid out apply just as pertinently to anyone hoping to successfully navigate higher studies." -Readers' Favorite
