humanizing soldiers and giving readers a stark look into the reality they faced. “If you disagree with your government’s decision to go to war, take it out on your politicians, not the soldiers that were simply sent to fight
MARIETTA, Ga. (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
In “Don't Mean Nothin'” (published by AuthorHouse), author and veteran C.H. Williamson’s new novel, readers gain a soldier’s perspective on a secret unit of the United States military during the Vietnam War.
Williamson lends his experience as a war veteran to “Don't Mean Nothin'.” He includes details about the secret military unit in the book, showing how it was formed, how it planned and conducted its operations and how both U.S. and foreign soldiers fought and died in a covert war that never made the headlines.
An excerpt from “Don't Mean Nothin'”:
“As they formed up and began moving back into the jungle, the smoke was just beginning to clear in what was left of the camp. Burning hoochs, explosions from the demo charges and the body parts and viscera strewn everywhere, testified to the total carnage evident in the site. The sickly sweet smell of death, mixed with the faint smell of Tear Gas, cordite and burned wood was everywhere, and the scent of burned human flesh floated on the early morning breeze as it blew calmly across the quiet gorge.”
Williamson tells very personal stories in “Don’t Mean Nothin’,” humanizing soldiers and giving readers a stark look into the reality they faced. “If you disagree with your government’s decision to go to war, take it out on your politicians, not the soldiers that were simply sent to fight,” he says.
