Sketches of an Earlier Time
Merriam Press Military Memoir Series. "A Combat Veteran of Three Wars Recounts a Twentieth Century Life of Duty and Adventure" As one of Americas "greatest generation," the 93-year-old author and 30-year military veteran takes his readers right along with him on a wild ride from 1925 to 1975. A child of the Great Depression and a combat veteran of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, Col. Ferguson recounts very personal, first-person vignettes of one live-action scene after another that capture and hold the readers attention from start to finish. Stories like these - from surviving beach invasions with General MacArthur in WWII as a 18-year-old sailor to numerous harrowing experiences as a combat fighter pilot and test pilot -- are typically found only in action adventure novels. 16 photos.
