A Review – The Mind of War by Sid Gould

Many books have been penned about war. For many who have never experienced a battlefield, they are moments of clarity into a situation we could never have imagined. Others, usually  soldiers often find a camaraderie in the words of a stranger that knows intimately about their experiences.

The Mind of War is that kind of book. Written by a soldier, the words are rough, harsh, and brutal – like war. Told in first person, the novel is more than a memoir, more than a journal, it is a no holds barred examination of men at war.

The author, Sid Gould was a normal kid growing up in Australia. A small town boy with a proud family history of service. He grew from a scared and somewhat bullied kid, to a fighter, to an arrogant teen that got into trouble to a rough soldier, and eventually, after many struggles, he became  a man true to himself.

Few books, particularly those written as a first person account are a well articulated as The Mind of War. From the first chapter you will want to know what becomes of the boy struggling to find his way in the world, and you won’t leave until you know that the soldier is safely home.
