"The Chief and His Marine"


 A Military Thriller inspired by true events

          Too many fathers and mothers know the feeling of pride but also the dread that follows a son or daughter going off to war. And along with dread, when the worst you can imagine happens, there is sorrow...and anger. Sometimes there is more. Join author B.A. Sherman at his most stirring and shocking best as he imagines the horror of war from a parent’s view.

        This is a story of love, hatred and revenge so gripping and so true to life, it’s hard to tell where reality ends and frightening fantasy takes over. Told in both the quiet streets of the U.S. and the explosive sands of Afghanistan, The Chief and His Marine goes where few have gone…and written about the experience.

        But war is real and likely here to stay, he will tell you. Worth thinking about, and deciding what you might do if it were your son or daughter out there. Or you.

These are the thoughts to grapple with in this story. They will make you hug your child a little tighter today, as you follow the Chief and Nick his Marine—just out of school and so proud to be serving his country—into the killing fields of hell.
