Overview

Is God on America's side? Is it possible a providential hand intervened at critical junctures during America's wars? Is freedom important to the Almighty? Larkin Spivey, a decorated Marine Corps officer and respected military professor, believes so.
In God in the Trenches, Spivey shows that when the nation's survival seemed uncertain, even doubtful, fate seemed to turn America's way, giving way to mysterious-if not miraculous-events. These events altered the course of history, leading to victory for the American military and enduring freedom for America's citizens.
Whether these events were miracles , or just plain mysteries, Spivey leaves no doubt that the history of the United States was swayed many times by a hidden hand. Will the hand of providence help America once again?

    Don't Look Back

    Don't Look Back

    Chapter 5

    "This is important, Perry. You have to cooperate." Z says sternly. He is on a sofa in the underground compound known as the Tunnel. The Tunnel consists of many built-in apartments for war refugees, "criminals", runaways, orphans, and any other lost or hunted people- mostly teenagers and children.
    "Okay, whatever. I don't see how I'm gonna SNEAK anywhere, but knock yourself out." I sit back in the lounge chair across from him.
    "I'm going to send you to a friend of mine. They'll make you pretty."
    I watch him without replying.
    "I mean, you're pretty already-" He adds quickly.
    I arch an eyebrow.
    "-but... you know what I mean!" Z avoids my eyes.
    "Just go ahead and send me, then." I say coolly.
    "Yeah... right... okay." He gets to his feet and gestures for me to follow. We walk down narrow hallways and past many closed doors. After a long silence, we stop outside a door. Just like all the others, it is wooden, and has a number on it- 1933.
    "You know I didn't mean you aren't pretty, right?" Z asks me.
    "Hey, chill out. I know what you meant." I pat his shoulder and knock on the door.
    A small part of me is nervous about what lays ahead.
    Probably paranoia.
    Maybe not.
