The Thin Wall: A POW/MIA Truth Novel
The Thin Wall: A POW/MIA Truth Novel
Price: $2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The media reported the Cold War - the Thin Wall lives it., June 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Thin Wall is a fictional account that reads as truth and exposes the reality and untold personal agonies of the Cold War. As a child I was safe and ignorant of these realities, an inactive bystander and observer. The media reported the Cold War - the Thin Wall lives it. A compelling personal level portrayal revealing not just fear and struggle, but revealing the unreported destinies of American POW’s who were never returned home. During a 21-year Army career I became more aware of the non-return of American POW’s and learned that what we know to be true and what governments acknowledge to be true are two very different facts - the Thin Wall sheds light on these facts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reality with Spirituality, November 28, 2012
I generally do not like reviews that have spoilers and give away parts of the story that ruin it for potential readers. With that in mind I would not want to spoil Nan's Journey by giving any specifics, but I will say that it is a wonderfully written story that combined real reality with spirituality and takes the reader on, as the title suggest, on a girl's sometimes good and sometimes bad journey. Very nice story that inspires and shows the values of faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Quick Read That Does Not End, August 24, 2012
This review is from: Sparrow's Tears (Kindle Edition)
Sparrow's Tears, the first book of the Sparrow's Tears Trilogy by Bernie Cenney, is a story of International Southeast Asian action, intrigue, romance and the unexpected. The author, a retired Green Beret, has developed a unique story about a Green Beret Captain--James Ross--and through the creative use of character development and dialogue weaved a romantic thriller filled with accurate details and exploits reflective of Special Forces, Intelligence Operatives and International Terrorism.

In this first installment, Captain Ross's routine assignment and romantic encounter with Lin Sparrow turns for the worse, bringing together elements of terrorism and current personal and national security concerns. Sparrow's Tears is clear, concise and a quick read that does not end, but instead prepares the reader for the second book in the series-- Close Your Eyes and See.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Western-Not just for the Western Fan, August 24, 2012
This review is from: The Nations (Kindle Edition)
Authors Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke continue to exceed expectations in their latest novel. The Nations, is a story that takes place in the late 1800's about the real life US Deputy Marshall Bass Reeves who worked the Indian Territories for the infamous Hanging Judge--Judge Isaac C. Parker.

The Nations and the accounting of Marshall Reeves' encounters with the lawless, his thirty-two year career, and the fact that Bass Reeves was also a Black Man, is brilliantly told through the authors unique and excellent writing style of telling a story through the characters themselves. The reader is drawn into the story with the sense of participation through dialogue and details of the era that gives a true sense of being there. The Nations is more than a Western; it has characters, sub-story lines and subject matter that are identifiable with the problems and issues of people even today.

The Nations is a true western with a real hero and authentic characters and details. As with all of Farmer-Stienke novels, the Nations is packed full of action, adventure, twist and turns, and saying any more would ruin the story for future readers.

For the Western buffs, this is a winner, and for those who've never liked Westerns, the Nations will change your mind and give you a new admiration for the way of the West.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Eagle Force: Sacred Mountain...a new level of expectation, April 8, 2012
When you pick up the second book in the Black Eagle Force series, Sacred Mountain, be prepared to not take a break. From the get go and within the first few pages Authors Buck Stienke and Ken Farmer takes the reader on a journey filled with explosions, action and adventure. Filled with an ensemble of fascinating characters, technology and an array of aircraft and weaponry, the almost 500 pages of Sacred Mountain embodies what those of us who served in the Special Ops Community endearingly called "High Speed Low Drag" and takes the term to a new level of expectation.

Sacred Mountain is a powerful and magnificent blending of arms dealers, terrorist, drug cartels and a combination of high speed low drag old fashioned patriotic blood and guts kick ass good guys...the Men, Women and War Dog of The Black Eagle Force. This is a book you'll definitely want for your collection as well as the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cherries...the Real Deal, April 3, 2012
All too often we read books where the authors write from their LACK of experience. John Podlaski writes and brings what only could be accomplished by someone with personal on the ground experience. In 1975 I joined the Army, went Infantry and was surrounded by Vietnam Combat Veterans who shared their experiences and stories with us Cherries. Reading John Podlaski's Cherries quickly brought back the similarities of shared accounts and training provided by the Vietnam Veterans. Cherries immediately conveyed a story and message of firsthand experience, providing detail, heart, soul and experiences.

Cherries is what can be considered an authentic story that anyone who was or still is in the Infantry can quickly identify and relate with. John Podlaski has incorporated connections with characters, life in the bush, tactics and blended them into stories within stories. While there is plenty of action, it is the detail that draws the reader into a learning experience about life in the Vietnam jungle, about relationships, loss and surviving what was called the "Nam."

If you're a Vietnam Veteran you'll understand and relate... If you want to learn and understand what it was like in the real Vietnam then this is the book. If you're looking for the Hollywood war movie, this is not it...this is the real deal.
