Vietnam war veteran, Perry McMullin is pleased to announce the release of his new military fiction novel, The Cross and the Sword: Hoi Chu Thap Va Thanh Kiem.
Can a life saver and a life taker become friends?
Find out as the intriguing events unfold in The Cross and the Sword.
Wannabe sniper Lance Corporal Perry McMullin is prepared to help win the war in Vietnam while Navy corpsman John Henry Fox dreams of becoming a military chaplain. Now just out of medical training, he is unsure of his newly imposed warrior status. As fate brings a life saver and a life taker together, they soon become friends—but not without conflict.
Focused on being a career marine, McMullin is on the military fast track, promoted to sergeant and trained as a sniper. Never a fan of war, Fox decides to return to college, causing the two unlikely friends to part. After instructing at MCB Quantico and working stateside intelligence, McMullin requests to return to Vietnam. Ensign John Fox has also returned to the battlefield, but this time as a navy chaplain. As The Cross and the Sword reunite during special covert operations and top secret missions, neither has any idea that a parting of ways is in store once again.
In this compelling, action-packed military tale, two men attempting to survive the ravages of war somehow manage to salvage a friendship and, in the process, discover a lasting gift that neither could have ever imagined.
