Book review

"Bug out: 1. To leave or quit, usually in a hurry. 2. To avoid a responsibility or duty." Bugging Out: An Army Memoir (1954) tells how the author dropped out of Boston College to marry, then volunteered for the Army draft to qualify for the G.I. Bill of Rights on his return to college. Demoralized by cruel superiors during infantry basic training, and lonely for his pregnant wife, he is caught between duty and self-preservation. Reluctantly, he turns to "bugging out." With wit and irony, O'Connell uses candid dialogue and vivid descriptions to relate how he dealt with the military assaults on his independent personality. The author's "battle of wits" shows one young man coping with the Army's challenges to his sanity, and offers scenes reflecting outrage, despair, and hilarity. "Tom O'Connell's years as an arrested free spirit in Mrs. White's group foster home prepared him to be a 'volunteer draftee' in the U.S. Army. He survived both periods of emotional torture to write another fascinating and gripping memoir."--Dr. Finbarr Corr, psychotherapist, author, and educator.
