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

Memoir – Making It Happen

Making It HappenMaking It Happen
A Memoir of Peace Corps and Venezuela in the 1970s
By Mike Kendellen
ISBN: 978-1974606474
ASIN: B07HDB7NQN
Genre: Historical Memoir, Memoir, Non-Fiction, Travel Memoir, Peace Corps Memoir
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.) pdf, kindle

“Making It Happen” is the revealing story of life in the Peace Corps in the mid-1970s where life wasn’t at all what he expected. From coaching baseball in a remote town, to working with Special Needs children, the author’s reflective tales evoke a long-ago era when life was different not only in the United States but in Latin America as well. The attitudes of the people he met, the challenges, the annoyances, and yes, the rewards are all treated with humor, blunt realism and honesty. It’s not a sugarcoated view of the world, but it is eye-opening, especially when told from the personal perspective of a young American always trying to determine his next move as he experiences life in another country and learns about the world—and finds his place

Memoir – Paths Less Travelled of a Scholar Warrior (Spy) Teacher Healer

Paths Less Travelled of a Scholar Warrior (Spy) Teacher HealerPaths Less Travelled of a Scholar Warrior (Spy) Teacher Healer
By Hon K. Lee
Published: July 2014
ISBN: 978-1494756253
ASIN: B00MFTNL9G
Genre: Memoir
Formats Available For Review: pdf

A personal memoir by Hon K. Lee describing his adventures: growing up in New York’s Chinatown; being a combat Marine; running CIA clandestine operations; teaching Chinese martial arts; and treating patients with Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

His story begins with Lee as a scrawny runt in a Chinese immigrant family. He gets bullied so often he yearns to be like the kung fu heroes he sees in the movies. He becomes a Marine to prove himself, but the horrors of war make him wonder what it would take to achieve peace. He joins the CIA’s clandestine service, only to see his career threatened in an ordeal that makes him reevaluate his life purpose, leading him to chase his dream to study Chinese medicine. Along the way, he apprentices with top martial arts masters, and opens a school to pass on what he’s learned.

In this straightforward, often humorous memoir Lee narrates his adventures from the streets of Chinatown to the battlefields of Vietnam, and from the corridors of CIA headquarters to the acupuncture clinics of Shanghai.

While his journey seems to take divergence paths, those familiar with stories about the knights of ancient China will recognize he’s traveling a singular path – a four-fold one of Scholar Warrior Teacher Healer, with Spy thrown in.
