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

LT. Strauss keeps your attention with each chapter. His ability to tell the story of the American Marine's contribution and sacrifices made in a God awful series of battles for valley in Vietnam Nam that few in the "World" could fathom is riveting! Only those that served could understand at the time. Those Vets have lived those recurring nightmares mostly feeling they were alone. Lt's manuscripts from his and his companies time in hell have touched many vets helping them to know they were not alone. This book is therapeutic for those that endured. These books should be required reading for all of our young Warriors in OTS (Officer Training School).
This book is a Riveting compilation of lessons of survival in crucible we called the Vietnam Nam War.
Sierra Hotel LT. Strauss! A great book!
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!
