My book Trilogy took over seven years for me to write and get published and released. They are dedicated to veterans, particularly troubled war veterans, of all conflicts and wars for freedom. As a Vietnam war veteran, I wrote these books as part of my own healing process as well as to assist other troubled war veterans find a viable alternative to suicide. The "Demons" of war are relentless --- Especially during fitful nights during horrendous "flash-backs! During the past 47 years I have successfully confronted my Demons and strive to help other troubled war veterans do the same. If but just one finds solace in my writings I will be successful in accomplishing my last mission!
Veteran published his first book at the age of 90. Mike Chapman was given exclusive access to the wartime diaries of General Harry J Collins, best known for his command of the 42nd Infantry Division (the Rainbow Division), which played a crucial role in blunting the German assault in the Battle of the Bulge and in the liberation of Dachau, and for his benevolent role in the occupation of Austria after the war.

Here are inspiring stories of love and courage. The heroes in this book are not only the incredibly brave dogs and their handlers who together lead the way into battle, but also the volunteers - civilian and military - who raise the puppies until 7 months, the veterinary teams and the kennel support crew. All of them are fiercely dedicated to the sacred mission of protecting our troops in the struggle against terror. My photojournalist wife Leslie and I had a wonderful time researching and writing this book. We believe that you will enjoy it, too.
