"Memoirs of politics and wars usually become less interesting with the passing of time. 'Company Commander' is an exception...It speaks to the younger generations with almost the same immediacy as it did to the generation of the Second World War." (Ronald H. Spector, from his Introduction)
"Nowhere is there a more honest, unassuming portrayal of the hopes and dreams and fears of a young infantry captain..." (Saturday Review)
"Impressive." (The New York Times)
