Young American soldiers and Marines are being sent to their death in a foreign country. Jack Gilroy's books, The Wisdom Box & Absolute Flanigan give young men and women alternatives to following government orders to kill and be killed.

It's happening all over again. There is talk of re-instating a military draft. Congressman Charles Rangle (NY) and Senator Ernest Hollings (SC) have bills that call for a draft of both men and women 18-26.

Jack Gilroy's novels, The Wisdom Box & Absolute Flanigan are about young Americans who refuse to follow United States government orders to kill. "I was just one of millions of young men ordered to train to kill in the '50's and '60's. Few of us questioned government orders. The 21st century plan to induct women may change all that. It's time to get tough and question the American addiction to violence," says Gilroy.

Christian Paul Gerber, former US Army Colonel and Profesor at Binghamton University (NY)wrote:"Absolute Flanigan goes beyond Hamlet in seeing that there is something rotten in the country of his birth."

Dr. Ronnie Casella, professor of Education at Connecticut State University said: "Jack Gilroy's novel, The Wisdom Box is a must read for high school, college students and their parents. American's need to rethink nonviolence and basic human values is answered with zest in both The Wisdom Box & Absolute Flanigan."

Books available through Amazon and Gilroy's web site.
