An essential read

A riviting tale with a twist of truth. As an ex-serviceman I can relate to this story and the most important message hidden within: "there is no I in team"

Couldn’t put it down

By the time you wind your way through all of the parts, this is an awesome story. Well written, and an excellent job blending the cast of characters into a story.


A good conclusion worth a read

Great story!

I had finished the first book and then found this one. Please read “A Charmed Life” first both well written and full of human reality situations.
Can’t wait for book 3


Another home run . . . but don't lose the handkerchief

Simply sublime. Teared up again at least half a dozen time. . . damn you outsider!
This one may be hard on some veterans . . . it's real.
Best cliff notes description of Ranger School you're likely to find. A bit updated, of course, but otherwise sounded like 1973 all over again . . . didn't mention the chiggers, tho.
A veteran's challenges reintegrating with family, friends, jobs . . . it's all here and, again, very real.
Wish volume 3 was out already.


Great story - Ignore the conspiracy theroy stuff

I enjoyed the second story as much as the first. The author has developed a great story with multi-dimensional characters. His political leanings aside if you can ignore that George Soros and the Democrats are responsible for all the bad things in the world you will be most entertained and happy with the time you spent reading book 2.
