Author L. Gilbert Payne's New Book Tells of the Courageous Marine Who Helped Bring Peace in a Time of War

It is a reminder of a different time when America’s greatest generation was forged.

This time of year, when we celebrate the birthdays of past American presidents and founding fathers, L. Gilbert Payne’s new book honors the brave soldiers who fought to keep our country safe when the whole world was caught in a war.

Payne’s book, “The Fish Factory,” tells the story of Matt Stover, a young Marine going through Special Ops training at the onset of World War II, when he is suddenly recruited for an important mission just off the west coast of the United States.

The mission takes place in the Aleutian Islands on the fictitious island of Luta in late 1942. Matt is posed with the challenge of saving a number of innocent islanders from the hands of their Japanese captors all while trying to foil their plot to bomb parts of his own country.

Readers will immediately fall in love with the main character and his uncanny ability to bring a brave positivity to any situation. He is someone you find yourself wanting to emulate in your own life.

Payne claims that writing this character was mainly a tribute to the incredible men and women who give their lives for their country every day.

“Being raised during post-World War II, my upbringing was filled with stories of men at war,” Payne said. “It is a reminder of a different time when America’s greatest generation was forged.”
