"We always appreciate our published books and authors recognized worthy of awards and we are especially proud when they receive honors from such distinguished institutions as the San Diego Public Library," says Neil Levin, CEO of Leatherneck Publishing.
On Saturday, January 27th the City of San Diego Public Library honored two of Leatherneck Publishing's books published in 2006 and written by San Diego County local authors. They are "Street Fight In Iraq" by GySgt Patrick Tracy, USMC (now 1st Sgt) and "An Angel Rode My Wing" by Lt. Col. H. Neil Levin, USMC, ret.
"Street Fight in Iraq" is one of the most compelling chronicles of the Iraqi conflict and is a best seller in Marine Corps Association bookstores. It relates with great candor the unvarnished realities of dealing with the day- to- day combat complexity in and around Ramadi, Iraq. This book is about Marines who made the journey into combat and the unbelievable events that made up their seven-month combat tour. The language is harsh, the writing brutally honest and the message clear. It's down and dirty and Marines love this book.
"An Angel Rode My Wing" has all the elements of any great action novel -- from being shot down over North Vietnam and miraculously surviving, similar to a James Bond adventure, to mysterious and mystical occurrences in life. Neil Levin writes about what he knows best -- flying and living life to the fullest! It's almost like sitting down at the bar with him as he reminisces about his life. He understates his combat actions and gives a wonderful insider view of those dashing aviators who flew over North Vietnam. You ride in the cockpit with him.
This book is for all age groups. It's comfortable entertainment that besides aeronautical adventures also presents some thought provoking issues about marriage, divorce, children, camaraderie out of body experiences and even UFOs.
