Doc Rio is reading the proof copy  it has captured his whole attention

Roger and Pinky Nash have come up through the ranks with the OSS and CIA. Along the way Roger earned the Navy Cross fighting in the Philippines, as well as a Bronze Star fighting with Merrillís Marauderís in Burma.Itís now January, 1950 and Pinky assumes command of the Japanese CIA office, as well as the responsibility for gathering North Korean intelligence. Will their first battle be with the NKPA, or the Supreme Commander Allied Powers, General MacArthur? What happens when SCAP goes to war against the CIA instead of the North Koreans? MacArthur has infiltrated and corrupted the CIA office. Can Pinky turn it around? The CIA immediately begins producing indisputable evidence the North Koreanís are ready to wage war, but can they convince the powers in Washington D.C.? What happens when Pinkyís personal life begins to crumble around her? Has her anger with Roger caused her to seek his replacement? 

In the early days of the war that was not supposed to happen, the North Koreans capture Major General Wm. Dean, commander of the 24th Infantry Division and hold him in a secluded prison. Several attempts at repatriation fail. In addition to intelligence gathering, the CIA plans a repatriation mission. Can Pinkyís CIA team of special agents do a better job than the Army? Will the small team of specialists thinking outside the box do a better job than the military might with traditional operating procedures? 

You will be on the edge of your seat as real people, not storybook fantasy characters take on the impossible and the story builds to an exciting and unexpected crescendo. Donít miss this exciting second book in the Behind The Lines series. † If you are like me and want a real book to hold and fondle while you read, then simply click this link and as-if by magic you will be transported to the Amazon listing for ďDean, the Captured General.Ē
If, on the other hand you are a technogeek and prefer the Kindle edition, simply click this link and you will find yourself at the Kindle listing for Dean. Further note... the price for the Kindle edition is only $2.99, and you can download a Kindle reader for your computer for free!
Guys, this old Army dude thanks you for your continued support and I hope you enjoy this latest book. Iíve got a ton of research ahead of me, the next book will be advancing into the Vietnam era, late Ď53-early Ď54, with an exploratory trip to Dien Bien Phu to see if we should support the French, or write them off. In Fertig Pinky was behind the scenes at the OSS academy. She takes a leading role in Dean, and hoo-boy, have I got some exciting scenes for her in the next volume of Behind The Lines! The storyline will also be split between Vietnam and the communists moving into Argentina, and some of the characters introduced in Dean might just find themselves fighting a totally covert, subversive battle in So. America. 


As always, Iíll do my best to keep the story historically accurate and keep you on the edge of your seat as you read the story..... Carl (Having spent the majority of my tour in the highlands at DakTo, guess where weíre ultimately heading...).





THE INDOMITABLE PATRIOT  Fertig, The Guerrilla General

One of our guys, although he had the misfortune of going Army instead of Navy, has become a writer in
his old age. His first few books were about the paranormal... he likes to chase ghosts in his spare time. But his latest
endeavor; Wow! He has started a new series of books he calls Behind the Lines. His first book, recently completed and
published is titled ďTHE INDOMITABLE PATRIOT: Fertig, the Guerrilla General.Ē Itís a historically correct novel about Wendell Fertig in the Philippines in World War II.  Hereís what the book looks like. 
Cover Final :
May, 1942. General Wainwright has just surrendered the Philippines. Wendell Fertig, a Corps of Engineers Lieutenant Colonel, refuses to comply and flees into the mountains of Mindanao. Fertig is soon
joined by dozens of former Philippino Army scouts who encourage him to form a guerrilla Army. Over the next few months Fertig is joined by several other displaced American soldiers, one of whom builds a small, makeshift transmitter and establishes contact with the Navy. 
General MacArthur denounces Fertig, going on record claiming itís impossible for a guerrilla movement in the Philippines to succeed. The O.S.S. decide to take a chance and covertly supplies Fertig by submarine. Once he receives the tools to wage war, his achievements become legendary. By the time MacArthur returns to the Philippines in 1944 he is met on the beach at Leyte by a force of over twenty thousand of Fertigís guerrilla Army. 

This fictional accounting is based upon the actual military records and reports of one manís impossible achievements against overwhelming odds; against an enemy who outnumbered him a hundred to one. Wendell Fertig, a civil engineer and untrained amateur in the ways of war, defied the predictions of the experts and brought the Japanese Army to its knees. Enjoy this first installment in the new Behind The Lines series of combat thrillers based upon historical records.

The book is available from Amazon in either print or Kindle versions, or by special order from almost any book retailer.
(Heís not Tom Clancy yet. They donít stock his books but they can order them). These links will take you to the Amazon listings. If you look at the Kindle listing there is a Look Inside feature that lets you read through the first chapter. 


About the Author     Carlís professional career began as an Army and then FAA air traffic controller. He advanced from a small radar van in the Central Highlands of Vietnam to the TRACON in one of our nationís busiest airports. He also became a commercial pilot and flight instructor, retiring after thirty-nine years of flying. By 1986 he was experiencing severe burnout. He put himself through the police academy, resigned from the FAA and became a deputy Sheriff in Reno, Nevada. He retired after a distinguished career on the street. Not only the cop on the beat, Carl became a renowned traffic accident reconstructionist on his departments Major Accident Investigation Team, as well as a highly acclaimed crime scene investigator. Throughout his life Carl has been a student of the paranormal and often experienced the effects of the supernatural in his personal life. In 2012 he became involved in the saga of the haunted Allen House in Monticello, Arkansas and its resident spirit, Ladell Allen Bonner. The result of dozens upon dozens of paranormal interactions with Ladell led Carl to write his first book about Ladellís life and death. Writing that first book sparked a latent avocation in his life: writing. Carl has always been a connoisseur of military history, and that interest began a new direction for his writing. This latest book is the story of Wendell Fertig, and the beginning of a thrilling new series, 'Behind The Lines.' While the stories are fictionalized, they are all based upon factual military history. Join in with Carl and enjoy his books as you gain an interesting new insight in what war is all about.

The following is typical of the reviews Iím receiving on the book: 

Just finished your book and you get 4.0 marks from this old Navy Seal. Really enjoyed and it adds to my hobby of WWII.
Spent 22 years of my 34 in and out of the PI. Have traveled every island and was trained a marksman by RJ when we were
stationed at Team 2 during Vietnam. Still a very good friend I keep in contact with. Going to recommend it to my friends,
at least the ones that can read.

 THE INDOMITABLE PATRIOT  Fertig, The Guerrilla General

Doc Riojas Comment:  Once i started reading this book, i have find myself hard to putting it down! because of my very old age (84 yr old eyes and at the end of being able to correct my vision) I find that the way  the paragraphs are other important text are spaced to be extremly easy to read.

Having retired from the Navy and traveled to that part of the orient reminds me of my days as a guerrilla combatant as part of the Navy SPecial Warfare serving as a Navy SEAL in the Jungles of Vietnam.

The author is equally as good a military writter as Tom Clancy.  This story may possibly be material for a great movie similar to the the movie produced about the POW rescue in WWII by Filipino Guerilla fighters and the U.S. Army Rangers.  "The Great Raid"

Do not wait to buy it tomorrow, order it today !  It was recommended to me by CDR R.D. Thomas (recommended for the Medal of Honor by the US Army, but our politically correct US Navy downgraded it to a Navy Cross. SHame on them !

The following is sung to the tune, "I've
been working on the railroad." Originated 
with the first demolition men at Camp
Peary, Virginia:

We're the demos of the Navy,
The Demolition crew,
A rough and ready bunch of blasters,
There's nothing we can't do,
From the reefs of Guam and Saipan,
To the shores of Tokyo too,
the best the Navy has to offer,
The Demolition crew.
