Nov. 14, 2011 - PRLog -- Umbrella Books has just released  "Seven Lives to Repay Our Country", a short story set against the backdrop of the Battle of Saipan, one of the bloodiest actions in the Pacific War. Written by a US Marine, this story follows a pair of Japanese soldiers as they confront the inevitability of defeat in different ways. The author mixes fact and fiction to examine the nature of humanity in modern warfare.

Reviewers write:

"...has an absurdist feel with a real life twist. I patiently waited and secretly wanted the characters to scream out that they were waiting for Godot..."

"...the story unfolds through the eyes of a soldier and captures the harsh and dismal reality of a war-zone..."
