“Equal parts history and firsthand account of military life, hte book is a unique and smooth read.” – Pacific Book Reviews This is a short story spanning two years from 1956 to 1958. It includes the author’s Marine Corps service as a Second Lieutenant artillery forward observer attached to the Third Battalion Sixth Marine Regiment led by Coloned Austin C. “Shifty”Shofner (one of only nine men ever to escape a Japanese prisoner war camp). It describes the maturation of Phase III warfare — the landing by helicopter of an intact infantry battalion ready to fight behind enemy lines (Operation Deep Water) and the beginnings of Phase IV warfare with the return of knights to battlefield (Yasser Arafat/eventually Osama bin Laden) and an M16/CIA joint clandestine, frustrated effort to overthrow the Syrian government (Operation Wappen).
