Descripción del libro
Military Fiction embedded in historical events. This is Book #1 in a Trilogy (Trilogy yet unnamed). We would like this cover to a template to use for books 2 & 3, with each having a slightly varying theme. For example, book #1 is set in the World War I era, book #2 in WWII era, and book #3 in Vietnam and Iraq war era. Story: The Patriarch of the family, Sam McCormick, is a dedicated doughboy, US Army Infantryman, serving with the Rainbow Division of the American Expeditionary Force, fighting in France during World War I. He just wants to do his job, survive the war, and return home to pick up with is life. To do so, he and his fellow Doughboys must survive being gassed, horrific artillery bombardments and machine gun fire as they cross “no man’s land” repeatedly to attack the Huns and take their trenches. Along the way he will meet several historic figures. Sam falls in love with Marie, a French nurse, whom he meets while recovering from his war wounds. They marry in Paris, return to the United States, and start their life together. Returning home to a grateful nation, which soon forgets their sacrifices, Sam tries to assimilate back into civilian life. It is a journey full of disappointment, frustration, violence, and pride in who he is and what the men he served with accomplished during the war and later in life as they fought for justice, recognition, and each other.

Men and women, history buffs, young people, adults, military veterans, active-duty service members, and readers of war genre books. Will be a good required-reading book for young high school students to gain a better understanding of WWI and its aftermath.

He went above and beyond, provided print book covers even though that wasn't required for the contest. And at the "handover" stage I asked him for one more color scheme just to see what it would look like and he provided me with several others
