Books By James Beaty
During World War 1, more than two million American fighting men went to France. Fewer than thirty thousand were U.S. Marines. Going West, a novel, is the story of Robert Bailey, a young man from Seattle who joins the Marine Corps when America entered the war in 1917. The story follows Robert as he evolves from an inexperienced rifleman into a disillusioned squad leader, responsible for the well being of a dozen other marines. He deals with a constant inner conflict as a squad leader, always aware that the decisions he makes can mean life and death for his men. The enemy isn’t the German army, but the war itself. Never the less, he does his duty because of the bonds that have developed between him and his fellow marines. Politics, presidents, and generals don’t matter. Robert and his companions come to realize that they can only rely on each other.

Privatized Dec 23, 2010
A great deal of interest has arisen in the past few years about the activities that private security contractors undertake on behalf of the United States Government. Many people believe that these men, far from being patriotic Americans, choose to spend months in various war zones for nothing more than a fat pay check with no strings attached. The reality couldn’t be farther from the truth. "Privatized" is a story that follows John Bailey, a private security contractor, on a deployment to Afghanistan with the State Department, where he and his team mates have to battle not only the Taliban and Al Quaeda, but incompetent colleagues and a client who believes they are more of a hindrance than an aid. In spite of this, the contractors at the sharp end do their best to remain focused on the mission of protecting their clients.
