James Stoup, a retiree, previous army journalist and corporate communications professional, traveler, devoted writer and author, has completed his new book “Behind the Wire”: a gripping and potent story of sex, drugs, war, life and memories.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, James Stoup’s telling work is a page-turner that will keep the reader mesmerized.

"Behind the Wire" is a story about the other side of the Vietnam War. It takes place at the beginning of the end of the United States involvement in Vietnam, from May 1970 to May 1971. But unlike many of the combat stories coming out of this war, this is a story about life in the rear - life behind the wire - and the 365-day experience that was shared by hundreds of thousands of soldiers who went to Vietnam but never saw combat. It’s a story about the large subculture of anti-war/anti-establishment troops that served there, and how they lived and experienced their “year in the Nam.” It’s a story about drugs, sex, rock & roll, insubordination and fraggings, and about the incredible lifestyle that had evolved in all ranks of the military over the ten-year course of the war. And it’s a story about an Army that knew it was losing, not only the war, but also the confidence and support of its troops. This compelling true story is told by an Army journalist who spent his year in the Nam at the beginning of the wind-down period of that tragic war.

Readers who wish to experience this profound work can purchase “Behind the Wire” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
