Meet the Author

David McDonald is something of a unique individual and confounds many with his achievements, having suffered five strokes he has impaired short term memory and impaired cognitive skills.


Despite this he has written seven books of War Poetry, all of which are well received, and another Novella, he struggles with grammar and refuses to surrender to his physical and mental limitations.


I served with David during his eighteen years of Military Service, an outstanding soldier he has used his past to inspire his present in his writing.


I leave it to the reader to decide but this man is worth the respect so many of us who know him display, he is one of the few who fights for the many.


John Holdsworth


RHF


His first publications, There are no Unwounded Soldiers, I Never Raised My Son to be a Soldier and Every Soldier Needs a Soul form a Trilogy of poetry and display his ability to use words to tell stories.


The Lost Century is a result of his prolific writing during his treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and contains some hard reading.


The latest and most acclaimed of his works "A Heart Without Words" is part 1 of a brace of books dealing with Emotions.

    Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers' Favorite

    Sergeant Fritz Lehmann comes home from tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Due to lack of manpower, these assignments have been difficult. And now he is called back for a tour of duty in Afghanistan again, much to the chagrin of his wife, Helen. Back in Afghanistan, the tale of the magic man spreads through the troops. but Fritz regards it as one of those old wives' tales until the time he meets the magic man himself. The sergeant and his troops have been lost in a patrol and here begins his discovery of the culture of the perceived enemy.

    David McDonald's "Enlightenment" is a story of war and how one man discovers the culture of his perceived enemy and in the process gets to understand them and their side of the conflict. I find the plot refreshing and it brings me to the point that not everything is black and white in any form of conflict. The author looks beyond the war being waged and focuses on the people who are directly involved in them. This is a short story that tries to remind us that in a situation of war, there is no bad guy and good guy. This is perhaps the tragedy of the situation. The author presents his thoughts without imposing them on the reader. The strength of the narrative lies in the way this provocative thought is presented with a subtlety that is perfectly restrained. After reading the story, my views about the war in Afghanistan have changed.
