Reviews
"A riveting memoir!"--Fred Leebron, author of Six Figures -- (9/26/2011 12:00:00 AM)
"What's refreshing about this memoir is the absence of finger-pointing or assignment of blame. Crow tells her story in a clear voice devoid of self-indulgent apologia. With humility and clarity, she covers both the betrayals she encountered and the self-discovery she made in the aftermath of the maelstrom in whose center she found herself."--Lorrie Lykins, Tampa Bay Times-- (4/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)
"Eyes Right provides fascinating details about Marine life, from training exercises in the high desert to the intricacies of relationships with superiors, subordinates and officers."--Shelf Awareness-- (4/6/2012 12:00:00 AM)
"You might not know that the female-soldier memoir is a genre. Perhaps you don't know that because so few of these true accounts were written by professional writers like Tracy Crow, enlisted women who later became creative-writing professors."--Village Voice
"Crow's is an engrossing story, and her impeccable storytelling skills bring her battles and triumphs--in the military and at home--vividly to life."--Publishers Weekly-- (5/7/2012 12:00:00 AM)
"This book will be of interest to military and Marine Corp historians as well as feminists and female Marines and soldiers."--Therese Nielson, Library Journal
