He yanked the slide of his rifle and clicked the safety on. A condom was stretched over the rifle barrel to keep out salt water. As the beach grew closer, Japanese mortar shells began to fall. They exploded all around the small craft. The anxiety was growing ten-fold with each explosion. West gripped his rifle tighter and tighter. Amongst the torrents of the greatest conflict ever fought, World War II, eighteen-year-old soldier Peter West must overcome his fears and summon his courage to fight the Japanese in 1942. Follow West through a journey of passion, love, valor, and death in Andrew Avery's debut novel, Foxholes and Flashbacks. He has left the love of his life, Catherine, back at home to await his return. On his quest to survive, West will face many perils: thousands of enemy soldiers, hills bristling with machine gun emplacements, suicidal nighttime attacks, and the hazardous jungle terrain. Accompanying West on his adventure are a collection of other soldiers in his rifle squad. Through alternating between flashbacks and the wartime present, Avery delves into the harsh realities of war. With an unflinching look into the pain and suffering of the era, Foxholes and Flashbacks delivers a punch that is sure to keep you turning page after page.
