ForeWord Reviews Book Of The Year Finalist 2014, 2014 NIEA Indie Excellence Award finalist in the Military Fiction category.

Yellow footprints painted on San Diego concrete mark the starting point for Trip Anderson's journey. They lead him, bloodied and scarred, through the hills of the Peloponnese and the poppy fields of China, on to the Pusan Perimeter. Was it all in preparation for Korea -- the 'forgotten war' that could never be forgotten by those men who were there -- and beyond? In charge of men who were hastily prepared for combat, leading them through the landing at Inchon and a deadly winter at Chosin, Trip needs all his acquired skills and knowledge to get his men, as many of them as possible, through three years of hell then back home again. The big question is what waits at home for him when the fighting is done, as political, military and personal realities set in. His post-Korean life holds a commission, but also heart break, national upheaval, and yet another war -- Vietnam -- where his sacrifices for his country reach new heights. His journey is that of a US Marine, on the road that is unfathomable to most civilians; he takes the road less travelled.
