As one of America’s “greatest generation," the 93-year-old author and 30-year military veteran takes his readers right along with him on a wild ride from 1925 to 1975.

A child of the Great Depression and a combat veteran of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, Col. Ferguson recounts very personal, first-person vignettes of one live-action scene after another that capture and hold the reader’s attention from start to finish.

Stories like these — from surviving beach invasions with General MacArthur in World War II as a 18-year-old sailor to numerous harrowing experiences as a combat fighter pilot and test pilot -- are typically found only in action adventure novels.
