About the Author
From a traveled elementary school education, changing schools ever two years, to attending a small liberal arts college, James Strauss graduated to a leadership position that turned out to be a 'hanging by the fingernails' survival position in the Marines Corps in the Vietnam War, 1969. From a hospital bed, when he finally found it was likely he would live, and looked up and asked God for one favor. James asked not to lead a normal humdrum life. He now believes that God heard his prayer and pointed one finger down to grant his request. Outrageous fortune was smiled down upon him with all of its travel, pain,depression, elation, danger, adventure and total lack of believability. For a time James tried to have credibility until he discovered that his own credibility was "without meaning". James has published four novels: The Boy, The Bering Sea, The Warrior, and Down in the Valley. He is currently readying another Arch Patton Saga, It Was 1993, and an accounting of his Vietnam War Experience, 30 Days Has September, along with publishing a weekly Midwestern Newspaper, The Geneva Shore Report

Semper Fi, Do or Die
John Conway USMCR 68-72
The NVA know their location and direction of travel...so does the battery of Howitzers in the rear - both will cause death. The L-T tries to outsmart the NVA troops and calls for extreme measures from his troops during that first week Seems that when things go right, Gunny gets the credit and when they fall apart it's because the officer in charge is a poor leader. Lt. Strauss ('Junior') tries everything in his power to keep his people safe - including himself.
It's a cat and mouse game...intense, terrifying and engaging. Who wins and who loses in this political game of chess in the jungles of Vietnam. When the story ends, readers will cry out for more! It is that good!
