Abstract:

After seeing his men suffer devastating losses in the Korean War, Marine Lt. Frank Strickland embarks on a one-man campaign that reveals some shocking and intriguing corruption within the military establishment that turns out to be more deadly than actual combat. This is a story based on true events concerning the explosive growth for power by the CIA in foreign lands, all authorized by the president of the United States. When CIA Director William Casey warned the author of War Hawks to Not publish this story, Gazzaniga became even more interested in the CIA's history and despite phone calls against his efforts from additional agents, he researched in depth the tale of the CIA's grab for power during the Korean War. Gazzaniga began this effort in the mid-eighties. This is the first publication of his work. * * * * With WAR HAWKS Donald Gazzaniga reveals dark, untold sides of the Korean War, America's first - but sadly not last - Post-WWII Military/Industrial Complex-driven misadventure. Thomas B. Sawyer - author of NO PLACE TO RUN, former Head Writer/Showrunner of MURDER, SHE WROTE * * * * War Hawks is a real page-turner, replete with memorable characters and a plot that is spun with expertise and authenticity. Gazzaniga put together a mystery thriller that had me thinking of The Manchurian Candidate and Three Days of the Condor while I was reading it. An excellent bit of storytelling with the writing of combat the best I've ever read. Tony DiMarco, former head writer Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley; writer M*A*S*H, Sledgehammer, others, and a Korean War veteran. * * * * In keeping with the traditions of such stories as, A Few Good Men, and Apocalypse Now, novelist, Donald Gazzaniga, in his new book, Harry's Wars, draws upon his real life experiences and brings to the mind's eye a brutal and gritty portrayal of the psychological complexities and life threatening dangers that engulf the life of Marine Lt. Frank Strickland during the Korean War. Harry's Wars is a story that embeds itself in your mind and stays with you forever. Mark Webb, Motion Picture Producer and Vietnam veteran. * * * * For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the government ... I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations. former President Harry Truman, in a letter to the Washington Post, one month after the JFK assassination, December 21, 1963.
