Overview

Secret missions, a Cuban spy, drug smugglers, the CIA, throw in a few ambitious students, a Special Forces Medic and you have an explosive mix.

One of the lessons that Operation Desert Storm taught is that the American people have an almost insatiable thirst for adventure. When it involves our warriors, when it pits them against the Forces of Evil, and when it takes place in an exotic environment, we can't seem to get enough. And when we win—Watch Out!

To Home We Come, an historical novel set in the late 60s, captures this spirit of adventure. The events of that turbulent decade primed the pump for the flood of changes that reverberates to this day. It was a time when Good and Evil were not so clearly defined, when the victories came not from the heights of power but from within the ranks, not from the politicians and the generals but from the student demonstrators and the lowly grunts. It was a time when history was a special secretive thing and no one person knew it all. To Home We Come provides a ground-eye-view of a small piece of this vast and colorful mosaic.
