"The author clearly brings forth the thoughts, fears, and hopes that run through a soldier's mind. The dangers and horrors of being a soldier, a civilian living under occupation, or a resistance fighter are well-defined in this book. I liked how the GI narrative voice ... kept the realism alive." --Historical Novels Review, Historical Novel Society
"Steve Anderson's Under False Flags is a piece of raw meat cut out of real life. From its opening on we are thrust into the brutal climactic frontlines of WWII's Western Front. From Normandy to the Ardennes we are there with the dogface GIs and their increasingly desperate adversaries--men on both sides who 'just want at the enemy.' Anderson's intertwined stories of US Army Sgt. Wendell Lett and his equally noble German counterpart Holger Frings--two men for whom battle is all they now know--supply the plot, but the book's true topic is men pushed to their absolute limits. Blastingly realistic, impeccably researched--Anderson is not afraid of heroes." --John Enright, author of Fire Knife Dancing
Praise for The Preserve
"A gripping and intelligent adventure thriller that takes us to an unknown but fascinating part of history, and to exotic but deadly locations, with plenty of lively action, and with characters I instantly liked." --Guido Eekhaut, award-winning author of Absinthe and Purgatory
"Readers will root for Wendell, with his unrelenting demons, as he soldiers on, fighting for his sanity and his life." --Publishers Weekly
"The Preserve artfully blends post-WWII Hawaii with a treasure hunt. Exciting from the beginning, the author takes us into scenes of the Big Island and the tortured mind of a soldier suffering from 'combat fatigue,' what we now know as PTSD. Highly atmospheric and a great read for military buffs and those interested in a thrilling story." --Ron Lealos, author of Pashtun
"In The Preserve, Steve Anderson once again paints a compelling and page-turning thriller with the men and women treated almost as expendable tools for post-WWII intrigue and violence. Once you read this story, the background of the almost coup d'état by MacArthur becomes all the more plausible--and frighteningly possible even today." --Peter Riva, author of the thriller series featuring expert safari guide Mbuno and wildlife television producer Pero Baltazar
