Editorial Reviews

Review

I've long considered Larkin Spivey a mentor, warrior, leader, and friend. 
His thoughtful devotional [book in the] Battlefields & Blessings® [series], Stories of Faith and Courage from the Vietnam War, links moments in time with timeless wisdom. This collection is "a gift a day"—recounting Vietnam experiences that connect and acknowledge all who have had the privilege of serving this great Nation.

General Peter Pace, USMC (Retired) 16th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
 

About the Author

During the Vietnam War Larkin Spivey commanded Bravo Company, 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion in defense of the Hue/Phu Bai region and Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines at Khe Sanh and other areas along the DMZ. He later served as Executive Officer of 1st Battalion, 9th Marines, deployed on amphibious ships in support of U. S. advisors and Vietnamese Marine units in country.

As a retired officer continues to be active with veteran organizations including the Khe Sanh Veterans, Third Recon Association, Force Recon Association, Officers Christian Fellowship and Christian Military Fellowship.


More About the Author

I am a retired Marine that came to Christianity late in life. I have continued a lifelong interest in military history, but I now write about God's perspective on our history and the power of faith among those have fought our wars. As a former religious skeptic I always have the doubter in mind when I write.

Battlefields and Blessings Vietnam provides 365 short stories to help understand the war experience in relation to the Scriptures. The short time it takes to read each story allows plenty of time to contemplate its meaning.
These stories of Faith and Courage have the ability to help a warrior better understand his war experience in relation to his beliefs.

Format: Paperback
This book will feed your heart, your soul, and your faith. If I were going to take just one book (besides the bible) into battle with me, this would be the one I would put into my Army duffle bag. The stories are truly uplifting and sacred. The author Larkin Spivey has captured the spiritual pulse of combat.

if you have a son/daughter or father/mother or husband/wife or any friend or relative in the military services this would be the perfect gift to send them. I also highly recommend adding this book to your personal library. Inspiring and entertaining as well. The author has crafted something of great value for all readers and people of faith!
