During Operation Enduring/Iraqi Freedom, Volkin organized
his notes, interviewed hundreds of other soldiers, and began
to write. The result is The Ultimate Basic Training
Guidebook, a unique and utterly indispensable guide to
successfully coping with and thriving in today's military.
The Ultimate Basic Training Guidebook is a comprehensive,
practical, and easy-to-follow survival guide written
specifically for every new or prospective recruit about to
enter any branch of the armed forces. Volkin's book offers
step-by-step instructions and solutions, including helpful
charts and graphics, for how to prepare both physically and
mentally for boot camp. It includes a special eight-week
fitness program specifically designed to improve your
fitness test scores, specific study guides, an instructional
How to"chapter, a list of what to bring (and not to bring)
to basic training, tips for success, and much more.
The Ultimate Basic Training Guidebook was written by a
soldier for men and women who want to become soldiers. No
one should enter boot camp without having read this book.
