Masters of the Art is an historically accurate account of US Marine helicopter operations in the area of the Demilitarized Zone and the Laotian border during the Vietnam War.
The book, published by Random House, provides a compelling view of Marine training, the heroics of individual Marine pilots and crews, and the aftermath of a war in which the fighters, like out South Vietnamese allies were abandoned by their government.
Granny Snatching is the true account of the late Ella Winter’s successful fight to prevent her offspring from forcing her into an Alzheimer’s home, even though she never had Alzheimer’s.
Ella, who took refuge in her son Ronald’s home in Connecticut and lived out her final years in safety, despite repeated assaults on her freedom, symbolizes the growing national scourge, Granny Snatching, in which the elderly are forced into institutions against their will while unscrupulous family members and guardians strip them of their hard-earned lifetime assets.
