My #bookreview of LEST WE FORGET by Brian L Porter

LEST WE FORGET by Brian L Porter 

BLURB:

In this poetry collection, Brian L. Porter will take you into the center of the action. One minute you’ll find yourself in the cockpit of a bomber, limping home from a raid over enemy territory, and the next in a dogfight during the Battle of Britain.
Author and screenwriter Brian L. Porter served with the RAF during the Cold War. Many of the works in this collection are based on the personal experiences of those who took part in the conflicts they depict; men and women who were pleased to relate those experiences to the author. You will experience the poignancy of his words, the simple message of Remembrance, the moving dignity of Polska, and the graphic horror of the concentration camps, as related in Holocaust.
“I am writing on behalf of all members of 617 squadron to thank you for your written tribute to “The Dambusters”. It is a wonderful piece, which for me captures the spirit and courage of the young men who played a part on that fateful raid”.
Flight Lieutenant Richard Saunders, 617 Squadron RAF, speaking of “Apres Moi le Deluge”.

MY REVIEW:

All I can say is WOW! I had tears in my eyes while reading these poems. So well written, I felt like I was there, in the trenches, battling in the air, just trying to survive. Such a wonderful tribute to the men and woman that gave their life’s for their countries, whether friend or foe.
My father was a Marine during the Korean Conflict and returned a changed man. He couldn’t see the future, thinking each day was his last. And my late husband was in the Army during the Viet Nam Conflict. He had a lot of ghosts he never got over. War is such a terrible crime, perpetuated by governments that don’t care, such as ours now.
If you’re a WWII buff, this is the perfect book for you, whether you read poems or not. I don’t normally read poetry, but I’m glad I read this book. I give it 5 feathers.

A must red for all war buffs.  Buy your copy toady:

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
