About the Book

Korea, the forgotten war is brought into focus

This is a story of love, passion and war. It wrenches men from the arms of the woman in their lives with no warning. A warm parting embrace a lingering kiss and the haunting wisp of cologne is the passport to unrelenting, unforgiving combat.

It wrenches men from the arms of their woman and places them in landing craft -racing toward a hostile enemy beach being pounded by aircraft and ships.

Bringing an under strength 1st Marine Division to full strength on its way to -combat was incredibly challenging even for the Marine Corps.

Men reported for boarding AP A in civilian clothes. It was necessary to issue uniforms, equipment and rifles minutes before casting off lines holding the ship to the -pier. Crash programs are initiated aboard ships at sea to prepare these men for combat. Fortunately officers and non-commissioned offers were combat experienced and ready for combat.

The woman left at home prepares the children for school or are pregnant and visiting the doctor. When asked, "where is daddy" the reply announced by the President of the United States was "Police Action."

About the Author

With the onset of World War II he enlisted, ultimately becoming a professional marine. He writes of World War II, Korea and Vietnam with knowledge.

On the Island of Iwo Jima he promised a friend if he himself survived the war their story would some day be told. That is the driving force behind his writing.

His first book in the Dark Sunrise Trilogy, "Dark Sunrise WW II The Islands was published in 1999."

With the publication of Dark Sunrise Korea while difficult for him to write it placed him on the path to inner peace.

Research is currently underway to complete the last book in the Trilogy. It will not be over until Dark Sunrise Vietnam is published.
