Sean Parnell certainly knows how to draw readers into the intrigue of war and espionage with his novels, and he does so again with great ambition in his latest novel, Man of War.
In it, we follow Eric Steele, an elite clandestine operative assigned to a secret US intelligence unit known only as the “Program”.
His abilities are put to the greatest test yet as he sets out to recover a nuclear weapon stolen from a military convoy… with the man behind it being a former brother-in-arms of Steele.
Alex Kershaw has used his exceptional knowledge and writing prowess to bring to life the stories of quite a few people from the Second World War, memoirs that may have otherwise been forgotten forever.
In The Liberator he returns to the helm of his ship and brings us the biography of a man whose path through the war was a strange and revealing one: Felix Sparks.
More precisely, we follow the journey of the 157th Infantry from 1943 and onwards as they carve their way from Italy all the way to the liberation of the infamous concentration camp at Dachau.
Scott A. Huesing is an author unlike most others. While most of those who write books about war have either researched or imagined the ordeal, Huesing is a man who lived through it first-hand and spent 24 years of his life in service of the U.S. Army.
Recently he decided to share a slice of his experience with the rest of the world in his autobiographical memoir titled Echo in Ramadi.
In it, he recounts the period from winter 2006 to spring 2007 during which he led Echo Company through the deadly streets of Ramadi, Iraq, where fighting kept raging on a daily basis and took its toll on everyone involved.
Rafael Amadeus Hines has self-admittedly fantasized time and time again about a hero stopping the 9/11 attacks, which he himself witnessed on that fateful day.
Ultimately, as a result of his musings he came up with the Sergeant John Bishop character, introducing him to the world in his first novel ever titled Bishop’s War.
Though he might be a retired special forces operative, it takes very little time for him to get thrust back into the thick of it, fighting terrorism on domestic and foreign fronts alike through a time which changed America for evermore.
