A gripping, absorbing tale of the Korean War and the prison riots on Koje-do during the last year of the Forgotten War.
S. Elmo’s riveting accounts of what it was like to be in Korea with the
U.S. Army in 1953 captures the very essence of being a draftee soldier
embroiled in the conflict.
Beggar’s Island, a fast moving
novel is written from Elmo’s perspective and experience in being a
Company Clerk, a pivotal person involved with the day to day management
and leadership of any Army unit. His descriptions of the accounts,
characters, interpersonal emotions and actions paint a stirringly
realistic explanation of what happened in and around Koje-do during the
final phases of the Korean War.
In Dalton Fury's All Lines Black, Syrian militant leader Abu Hamam al-Suri wants to defect from ISIS—an action which will in all likelihood bring about the end of the insurgency. He just wants one thing first. The head of the American commando who killed his son in a raid two years ago.
Newly-appointed Secretary of State Bill Mason isn’t above sacrificing American lives to satisfy his ambition, so when al-Suri’s back-channeled demand falls in his lap, he senses an opportunity to settle the score with his old nemesis, Delta Force squadron commander Kolt “Racer” Raynor.
When Raynor gets the order to lead a mission into Syria to bag the new ISIS money man, his gut tells him something is fishy, especially since he has been ordered to personally lead the mission. Raynor doesn’t mind leading from the front. In fact, he prefers it. But as soon as the assault team is on the ground, Kolt knows his gut instinct was dead on. The mission is a setup, an ambush intended to take out Raynor and his men.
Now Raynor has a new mission: Find out who set him up and why. But to do that, Raynor and the Delta team will have to run the gauntlet—an entire city controlled by enemy fighters.
