Review: Like a Champion by Vincent Chu

by MK French

Like a Champion is a collection of eighteen short stories about average people at different moments in their lives. The description for the collection notes "that moments of glory can happen when we least expect it," but don't think of this as the geeky kid getting a spectacular three-point shot in basketball. Yes, "Squirrels" does include literally that moment, but that isn't the point of the stories. It could be something smaller in scope, a victory that no one else might understand or know about.

Review: Twenty-One Steps of Courage by Sarah Bates

by Sal

I haven’t read many military books but the cover and description of this book got my attention.  I enjoy military movies so I decided to give Twenty-One Steps Of Courage.  I am so glad I did!

Sarah Bates: Gratitude

In 2006, I was in the early stages of writing Twenty-One Steps of Courage. Prompted by the growing threat of war in Iraq, neighbors in my small town that borders on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton began readying for deployment. I was accustomed to the sounds of training; heavy artillery booms that shook my home, small arms fire, helicopters overhead, but this was different. As my novel progressed and I began to surround the protagonist with buddies, a girlfriend, his mother, the military deployment activity in my neighborhood and the protagonist’s similar preparation for war inextricably connected.

3 World War II #Books You Need to Read

by Susan Roberts

There are a lot of new books about WWII, a war that ended over 60 years ago.  It always amazes me that the new books are rarely a re-telling of the same story but instead, they look at the war from differing perspectives.  I have reviews of three new books today and even though all three of them are about the resistance, they take place in different countries - one is set in Italy, one in France and one in Germany.  In all three books, the authors did extensive research and give the reader fictionalized accounts of real events and real people.  If you enjoy historical fiction about this time in history, give these books a try.
