Pearl Harbor Day: All the Gallant Men by USS Arizona Survivor Donald Stratton

Memoir of a Survivor of the USS Arizona


Today is the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. One man who lived through the sinking of the USS Arizona tells his, and his shipmates' story, in his memoir published last year - All the Gallant Men: An American Sailor's Firsthand Account of Pearl Harbor by Donald Stratton (with Ken Gire).

Here's the blurb:
THE FIRST MEMOIR BY A USS ARIZONA SURVIVOR: Donald Stratton, one of the battleship's five living heroes, delivers a "powerful" and "intimate"* eyewitness account of Pearl Harbor and his unforgettable return to the fight

At 8:10 a.m. on December 7, 1941, Seaman First Class Donald Stratton was consumed by an inferno. A million pounds of explosives had detonated beneath his battle station aboard the USS Arizona, barely fifteen minutes into Japan’s surprise attack on American forces at Pearl Harbor. Near death and burned across two thirds of his body, Don, a nineteen-year-old Nebraskan who had been steeled by the Great Depression and Dust Bowl, summoned the will to haul himself hand over hand across a rope tethered to a neighboring vessel. Forty-five feet below, the harbor’s flaming, oil-slick water boiled with enemy bullets; all around him the world tore itself apart.

In this extraordinary, never-before-told eyewitness account of the Pearl Harbor attack—the only memoir ever written by a survivor of the USS Arizona—ninety-four-year-old veteran Donald Stratton finally shares his unforgettable personal tale of bravery and survival on December 7, 1941, his harrowing recovery, and his inspiring determination to return to the fight.

Don and four other sailors made it safely across the same line that morning, a small miracle on a day that claimed the lives of 1,177 of their Arizona shipmates—approximately half the American fatalaties at Pearl Harbor. Sent to military hospitals for a year, Don refused doctors’ advice to amputate his limbs and battled to relearn how to walk. The U.S. Navy gave him a medical discharge, believing he would never again be fit for service, but Don had unfinished business. In June 1944, he sailed back into the teeth of the Pacific War on a destroyer, destined for combat in the crucial battles of Leyte Gulf, Luzon, and Okinawa, thus earning the distinction of having been present for the opening shots and the final major battle of America’s Second World War.

As the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack approaches, Don, a great-grandfather of five and one of six living survivors of the Arizona, offers an unprecedentedly intimate reflection on the tragedy that drew America into the greatest armed conflict in history. All the Gallant Men is a book for the ages, one of the most remarkable—and remarkably inspiring—memoirs of any kind to appear in recent years.


You can also read more about this remarkable hero in this short article in the US Naval magazine All Hands.

New Release: Winner Takes All by Robert Bidinotto

Justice Thriller


I got this email from author Hans Schantz recommending another author's book:
This is an excellent book your Bookhorde readers might like: Winner Takes All by Vigilante Author, Robert Bidinotto. This is his third Dylan Hunter Justice Thriller. The previous installment was CLFA Book of the Year in 2014, and this one - I think - is even better.

Here's the blurb:
Engaged to be married, mysterious journalist Dylan Hunter and CIA officer Annie Woods are eager to put their violent past behind them, for good.

But then an intrepid investigative reporter is brutally, mysteriously murdered.

A visionary presidential candidate is targeted for destruction.

And a horrific day of unspeakable terrorism rocks Washington, D.C....

Soon, Hunter's investigation puts him in the cross hairs of a power-hungry billionaire and a cold-blooded assassin. Camouflaged by "fake news," a deadly conspiracy of Russian spies and American traitors aims to install their puppet in the White House.

And these predators will do the unthinkable to bring America under their total control.

The stakes -- political and personal -- couldn't be higher. Because to stop them, Dylan Hunter must make an irrevocable choice. He must revert to his dark, secret life as a violent vigilante, waging a one-man war against the corrupt and untouchably powerful.

It's a decision that will, finally and forever, seal his fate . . . including his future with the woman he adores.

But for now, only one thing is certain:

In the tidal wave of political violence sweeping through the blood-soaked streets of Washington, D.C., the final outcome will be . . .

       WINNER TAKES ALL


The first book in the Dylan Hunter series is Hunter and the second book is Bad Deeds.

This is a prequel to The Stars Came Back and is "about the founding of an order of monks... with guns!" in the author's words.

Here's the blurb:

The experience sends him in search of the men who are increasingly absent from the Church, who find themselves at a loss in a world that has gone increasingly feral, and who feel that they have nowhere to go and no one to whom they can turn for support.

FREE: The Untethered by S.W. Southwick

Philosophical Techno-Thriller


This coming-of-age techno-thriller is FREE today and tomorrow - The Untethered by S.W. Southwick.

Here's the blurb:
A juvenile delinquent chases his dream to build the greatest aircraft in history--and the world tries to stop him. A rising political star runs from her childhood dream--and the world encourages her on. A self-loathing geneticist hides below the streets of Las Vegas--and rebels against the whole world. An artist tries to make his father proud--at the cost of everything he loves.

When all four lives collide, each must make a choice. And the world will never be the same.

-----------------------

Quote from the back cover:

Alexa counted her shallow breaths. “Roble, what...what is it you need?”

He pulled his arrowhead out from his shirt and rubbed it. “I don’t need to hear how scary the world is and how I shouldn’t try anything. I don’t need to know how much suffering there is out there,” he pointed out the window, “or how bad I should feel about it. What I need…” he looked up, his grey eyes pleading, “…is to see someone who is still happy after growing up.”

Lowering his head, he added, “I need to see living, Ms. Patra, because I actually want to live.”

-----------------------

Quote from inside:

The East China Sea glistened like an endless glass sheet. The F-22 Raptor Super Kai flashed just above its surface, ripping twin aerated water plumes into the air.

A grey destroyer sat broadside in the water just ahead. Roble hurtled toward its bow without slowing.

Crossing above the ship, the jet's sonic shockwave rocked sailors to the deck as if Roble's soul had exploded through their bodies. Sea spray from the wake doused the ship's hull like an exclamation point.

-----------------------

Advisory: This novel contains sex, drugs, and fighter jets.
