The Vietnam War has tormented American consciousness for more than half a hundred years, and Up-Close & Personal is a signal contribution to understanding that drawn-out conflict from a soldier’s point of view, informed by knowledge gained from being “up-close” at the basic, ground-pounding or river-patrolling combat level. Drugs, sex and blind resistance to authority at home exported its rot to the military in Vietnam as morale collapsed and Army leadership went adrift. 1969-1970, the era covered by this book, was the nadir. That the stalwarts who dubbed themselves “Bushwhackers” were actually Military Police assigned an infantry role — and thus unique in US military history — makes the tale all the more compelling.

“One Marine’s deeply personal account of the cold realities of combat.” —John H. Briggs, Major, United States Army, Retired

“I felt informed, moved and, ultimately, encouraged.” — David J. Hogan, editor-in-chief and contributing writer, The Holocaust Chronicle

“We cannot possibly comprehend the battlefield terror that changed their inner being forever. ‘War is Personal’ helps us to better understand” — Lt. Col. Jaime Parent, USAF, author of Moving Past PTSD

The Invasion of Okinawa was one of the bloodiest battles of WWII Pacific. Roy Wilkes, Private, USMC was unfortunate enough to have a front-row seat. True, gripping stories and pictures reveal the mind, heart, and soul of a fighting WWII Marine.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK:
“The grim reaper missed me. The dumb bastard had a close-up swing at me on six different occasions—and missed.”

“The casualties were monumental. Trucks were coming down the lines with Marines piled like cordwood. They put ponchos over ’em, but you could see all these feet dangling out. It was like a conveyor belt. We were going up and they were coming back. The only difference is we were alive—and they were dead.”

“Continuous rain dampened the soul. The low, thick dark clouds made sure God didn’t see. What happened here was a secret from Him. God was busy someplace else. So this part of His Universe went insane.”

– Semper Fi

History/Biography – A Thousand Points of Truth

A Thousand Points of Truth
By V.P. Hughes
Publisher: Xlibris
ISBN: 978-1524527181
ASIN: B01L1U43X2
Genre: History and Biography
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers and bloggers in the U.S.), pdf

The title of this book reflects the halftone process used to print photographs in newspapers and while all the articles that appear in the book suffer from some degree of inaccuracy, there arises from them as a whole—just as the dots in the halftone process produce a photograph—a portrait of Colonel John Singleton Mosby not found in the most searching and detailed of biographies and historic accounts.

Here we read the personal testimonies of friends and enemies, contemporaries and scholars and, of course, Mosby himself. A Thousand Points of Truth presents for the first time, a great American hero in all of his magnificent and fallible humanity.

WWII Military History – The Road To War: Duty & Drill, Courage & Capture

the-road-to-warThe Road To War: Duty & Drill, Courage & Capture
By Steven Burgauer
ISBN: 978-1450218801
ASIN: B003Y74NR2
Genre: WW2 Historical Military
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers and bloggers in the U.S.), pdf, kindle

A riveting first-person account of a brave young man caught up in a cataclysmic World War.

This is the story of Captain William C. Frodsham, Jr., who — shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor — enlisted in the U.S. Army Infantry, where he excelled in basic training, became a junior officer, and eventually led a combat boat team ashore on OMAHA BEACH.

Six days later, in French hedgerow country and under withering German fire, Frodsham was wounded and taken prisoner. He spent the next year as a German POW, where he suffered great deprivation before finally being liberated by advancing Russian forces.

His training, his courage, his capture. The reader is taken for a first-person tour of the times at home and then tunneled into a vastly different world on the battlefield and in a German prisoner-of-war camp.

A truly remarkable story.

History – Jockey Hollow

Jockey HollowJockey Hollow
Where a Forgotten Army Persevered to Win America’s Freedom
By Rosalie Lauerman
Published: September 2015
ISBN: 978-0692507834
Genre: History, Non-Fiction
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.)

Jockey Hollow has all the makings of a riveting work of fiction–treason, mutiny, enemy attacks, extreme weather conditions, unpredictable personalities, shortage of supplies–but what happened at Jockey Hollow in the winter of 1779-80 is entirely and monumentally true. It is also virtually unknown, which is why Rosalie Lauerman, who specializes in uncovering and writing under-told stories for young readers, is telling it.

This award-winning book shows the depth of the soldiers’ conviction that America should be a free country and the price they were willing to pay to win that freedom. In his farewell address, General Washington lauded the soldiers, noting, “The unparalleled perseverance of the Armies of the United States . . . was little short of a standing miracle.,”
