Editorial Reviews

Review

The last line of a Book Review written by Bob Edmonds appearing in the February 13, 2014 Edition of the "McCormick Messenger" states, "THE BLANKET HILL INSURGENCY is a reading experience that readers will long remember."

From the Author

The Blanket Hill Insurgency is a fictional accounting of a time in our history the Baby Boom Generation lived and (in their own way) struggled with the radical and rapid changes of society. As children, this generation lived in an environment of patriotism as it blossomed following the Second World War. Most possessed faith in the Lord, respect for elders and a belief the United States and its government was the best in the world. Fear of the spread of communism, remnant of the witch-hunts of Senator Joseph McCarthy and Russia launching Sputnik, united most in support of our government's involvement in the Korean Conflict, the Cuban Missile Crisis and Southeast Asia.

By the end of the decade of the sixties, change plunged the nation into chaos. Young adults were faced with decisions fueled by events causing each to question their values. The advent of the pill led to a sexual revolution. Escalation in Vietnam, with daily live newscasts, raised doubt about our involvement... especially with so many men facing the military draft. Their trust in the establishment decayed.

Each made their choices. Some retained their childhood values and supported actions in Vietnam or enlisted in the military. Some became pacifists or activists against the government. Thousands were drafted or fled to Canada to avoid the draft. Others joined in radical and some-time violent activities seeking to destroy the establishment. As chaos reached a pinnacle, four students died as National Guardsmen fired into thousands of protesters on Blanket Hill at Kent State University. 

Much more than a tragedy, The Blanket Hill Insurgency follows young adults on campus and in the military. They experience the joy of being in love and despondency of breaking up, good times with friends and challenges with antagonists, partying at student taverns and the struggle to maintain grades (to flunk out was a near guarantee to be drafted) and clashes with authority and parents.

I wish the reader the same enjoyment I had writing The Blanket Hill Insurgency.
