by Lt. Col. (Ret) Joe A. Putnam

In 1967, Joe Putnam, fresh out of officer training school, is shipped overseas to Vietnam as part of President Johnson’s American Adviser program.

Putnam perfectly captures the action, the people, the battles, and of course the mixed feelings of a young man far away from home in a foreign land.Most of all, even now, Putnam wonders why he survived numerous harrowing episodes when others did not....

The Good Will Son

by David S Libbey

The Good Will Son is a memoir by the son of two orphans from the Good Will Home in Hinckley, Maine. David’s father, deeply affected by his experience as a Marine in WWII, was excessively passive and introspective. His mother – molested as a child by her alcoholic father – found religion and carried her faith to extremes. David moved from a life with a religious fanatic to hell as an Army enlisted man in Vietnam. When he returned from war, he returned to an ungrateful nation. He found comfort among the hospitable people of the South while attending college in Memphis. After college, he joined the Marine Corps and became a helicopter pilot – eventually flying President Reagan in Marine One and commanding a helicopter training squadron. This memoir contains forty-four stories that co...

The Kaiser, Führer & John: One Man, Two Wars (MERSEYSIDE TALES OF WAR Book 2)

by Chris Whitfield

When he died in 1984, John Rollinson appeared to have lived an undistinguished life, and for the majority of his eighty-seven years this had steadfastly been the case. Yet in the Great War between 1917 and 1918, he had trained at the notoriously brutal Étaples Camp in Northern France, experienced the mud hell of the Ypres battleground, and suffered behind the wire as an Allied Prisoner of War on a diet of black bread and acorn coffee. And then during the Second World War as an army cook, he was exposed to the terrors of Dunkirk, subjected to chemical experiments at Porton Down, and forced to witness the horrors of the liberated Buchenwald Concentration Camp in Germany.Based on a true story, The Kaiser, Führer & John is a humbling, remarkable account of stoicism, fortitude, and courage, a...
