This is a different kind of history book, one told, not by historians, but by the families of the veterans of World War II. Here they tell the stories that have never been heard. Stories that the veterans told only to their wives and children; stories so personal, so touching, and so real that it will change the way you look at the war and change the way you see the men and women of the greatest generation.
Soldiers’ Stories: A Collection of World War II Memoirs opens our eyes to the reality of war and opens our hearts to these soldiers in a way that can only be seen through the eyes of the people who loved them.
This is a beautiful book in so many ways. You won’t be able to put it down and you will never forget it. Additional links http://bit.ly/2h4ESsg or http://amzn.to/2gW8fJX history/non-fiction

A Haunting Journey to Destiny- A Fictional Look at the Early Life of King David
One of the most prominent names in the Bible is that of King David, who is a significant spiritual figure in the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The story of “David and Goliath” has become one of the most recognizable tropes in our culture.
The Leper Messiah, by Robert M. Levinson, takes a dark, often mystical walk through the life of this iconic figure. Levinson’s book explores the forces, both human and magical, that molded a shepherd boy into a king destined to unite the tribes of Israel. This is not a religious book. It’s a work of historical fiction that reimagines the life of King David on multiple levels. http://www.rmlwriter.com

The Dirty Boots: The Stories of a Reluctant Warrior It is 1966, when a nineteen-year-old boy from Three Rivers, Michigan, follows family tradition by enlisting in the United States Navy. A plan which he thinks will guarantee an uneventful tour of duty aboard a US naval ship goes awry when he is deposited in the middle of a war zone in South Vietnam. For the next grueling year, he performs the duties of a fleet marine force medic, caring for wounded and dying American marines. Dubbed Doc John by his comrades, he soon becomes entrenched in a strange, dangerous world, where he becomes both witness and reluctant warrior. Whether he is patching up wounded comrades or placing Band-Aids on scrapes of native children, young Doc John somehow manages to do an impossible job, even as the world is falling down around him. He not only learns the sad lessons of war, but survives them and finds himself in the process. These are the experiences of a different kind of soldier, who manages to traverse a minefield of emotional upheaval and can still tell his stories with honesty and self-deprecating humor, exemplifying the resiliency of the human spirit.
