Three prominent Americans debate the merits of unchecked immigration, national security, and civil rights. While it sounds like a contemporary, made-for-TV event, this confrontation takes place in 1799, with three of America’s Founding Fathers as participants: Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and Aaron Burr. Legendary radio dramatist Norman Corwin created this imagined discussion from the participants’ actual writings—proving that when it comes to politics, some things never change.An L.A.

“The boy they called Heck arrived at Omaha Beach in August 1944. Soon he would be sent to the front . . . ” George Tilson, an 18-year-old Iowa farm boy, is nicknamed Heck because he won't curse. Other than that, he's a typical soldier, willing to do his duty without much fuss or musing about grand goals.During his first horrific exposure to combat, Heck discovers a dark truth about himself: He is a coward. Shamed by his fear and tortured by the never-ending physical dangers around him, he struggles to survive, to live up to the ideal of the American fighting man, and to make sense of his feelings for a young French refugee. As the stark reality of combatand the knowledge that he could cease to exist at any momentpresses in on him, he makes a series of choices that would be rational in every human situation except war.Writing with remorseless clarity in a starkly minimalist style, Arvin draws you into the unimaginable fear, violence, and chaos of the war zoneand creates one of the most disturbing and unforgettable accounts of a soldier's life ever written.Available Formats:Loading more titles...
