A book based memoirs in the final phases of being written, Behind the Gun© is a collective as well as a firsthand account of war, all through the eyes of a young college football player who left college at the outbreak of the 1st Gulf War and became a light infantryman. Through the eyes of the M-60 Machine Gunner, you’ll join number 92 and the 92 men of A CO, along with B CO, C CO & other warriors through each phase of operations in Somalia, from “Behind the Gun” for a raw and unpolished account of war. A war you know next to nothing about. My last mission is to share my experiences with the world that it may learn.
If you ever wondered where the War on Terrorism really began, and what specifically led to the events in the climax of America’s involvement in Somalia, and what American troops were actually doing there, you’ll want to read this book. We were the first to face the extremist movement in its infancy.
From Behind the Gun, you will see all; nothing escapes the vigilant eyes of the machine gunner.
Learn about US combat missions with Belgian, French, Italian, Australian, New Zealand, Pakistani, Moroccan & Canadian forces all over Somalia in cities including Mogadishu, Kismayo, Barawa, Beledweyne, Afgooye, Baidoa and many others.
His friends call him “B.C.” for “Big Country”. However, rather than using the military phonetic pronunciation of “Bravo Charlie”, he is called “Bravo Charles” because he has panache, as declared by his friend and 1st platoon RTO, Mangold.
