Sean Paul O'Malley leaves the Ottawa Rough Riders of the Canadian Football League and enlists in the U.S. Marines. His adventures in Vietnam from August 1966 to March 1968 are extraordinary and unforgettable. These tales of heroism in battle are riveting and transfixing -- they make the heart race and leave the reader fascinated, absorbed and in awe. O'Malley begins with his first day in "the bush" by bravely killing a Viet Cong with a bayonet, thereby saving his Company Commander's life. Adding to the complexities of war, an indescribable heartache and personal tragedy tear at his soul, and O'Malley responds by becoming a relentless, efficient destroyer of the enemy. He also emerges as a superior leader -- one who passionately cares for the people under his command. This young man with a powerful, charismatic character, a big, resonant baritone voice and a deep commitment to duty and honor is that rarity among soldiers -- a true warrior. Author Major R. E. G. Sinke Jr. enlisted in the Marine Corps and fought in Vietnam from 1966-1971, earning five Purple Hearts. He is married, has three children, and owns and operates a horse ranch in Canada. He is surrounded by farmers -- "men who are of stalwart character and great integrity and as close as I will ever get to living among Marines again."
