Description

Against a backdrop of dusty battle near the 38th Parallel in Korea, Dick Sayers creates a tale of human passions and adventure in No Victory, No Sting. Characters like the ever-optimistic Scotty and the unstable narrator, Tom, struggle with their own expectations, disappointments and insecurities, questioning their own philosophies of life as Washington uses them as pawns in a war with no end - a stalemate. Despite their courageous efforts at engaging the enemy, the men fight the ever-increasing feeling of being a rat trapped in a bunker. They court death, defy it and finally have to face it in what was the first and last protracted trench warfare since World War I. But interwoven throughout all the dark clamor of war are the silver threads of human emotion, camaraderie, loyalty, friendship and courage, bright spots in an ugly picture of war and life, until the characters arrive at a place where they can actually see the value of life and the joy and fulfillment of a victory over death.-Judy Kahler Editor & Publisher, Senior Times Magazine Dick Sayers expresses battlefield emotions, philosophy, esprit d' corps and 'the Will to Win' of 'The Queen of Battle' as seen through the eyes of a combat infantryman. -General James A. Van Fleet (Gen. Van Fleet was Commander of the U.S. 8th Army and the U.N. forces in Korea for 22 months. His motto is the Will to Win. The military proudly refers to the Infantry as The Queen of Battle.) Not since All Quiet on the Western Front has a novelist captured the realism - the brutality and beauty, the loneliness and love, the courage and tenderness - of combat infantrymen embroiled in a long, static trench war. No Victory, No Sting is a superbly written, intensely human novel rich in pathos, irony and brilliant touches of humor, delicately handled. It's an absorbing, eminently readable book, true to life and true to history. Dick Sayers is a master of dialogue and understatement. -Dick Adams National President, Korean War Veterans Association Author Bio Dick Sayers is an award-winning journalist with the Claudia Ross Memorial Award and numerous others to his credit.He is a decorated veteran of World War II and the Korean War. Mr. Sayers is a retired county commissioner and worked as a public relations director in the corporate sector. He lives with his family in Cape Coral, Florida. No Victory, No Sting is his first book
