Beautiful young Angie Giles waits at home through day after agonizing day
for the return of her beloved husband, Tony, as he soldiers through his
365-day deployment as an Army infantryman. Finally, unable to suffer
through another day of waiting or another night of torment, Angie incites a
chain of events that will haunt her for the rest of her life, and change the
lives of those she loves, forever.
In Angie's War, author Gary
DeRigne tells a gripping tale of love and loss, fear and courage,
desperation and hope, that begins in the jungles of Vietnam and extends
through the battlefields of Somalia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. All the
while, through generation after generation, loved ones at home wait, and
worry, and pray, in an America that has become callous to the human cost of
Praise for Angie's War
"A masterpiece. DeRigne is a gifted storyteller, and Angie's War is destined to become an American classic." - Bob Babcock, Vietnam Infantry Platoon Leader and Author of Eight Military Books
"Angie's War is not only important historically, it's one hell of a good read. As a Vietnam war widow myself, I deeply identified with Gary DeRigne's compelling story about duty, loyalty, love, loss, and most importantly, hope. I can't wait for this to be a movie." - Linda Hughes, Award-winning Author of Secrets of the Summer
"Angie's War is a powerful story that is a timeless reflection of the emotions associated with three generations of combat. As a combat veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns, I can fully relate to the American heroes and their families - both past and present." - Lieutenant Colonel Chris Morris, Active Duty Special Forces Officer, United States Army
"At last... A novel about war that also starkly
portrays the anguish and pain of those who wait at home while their loved
ones are far away in the fight. A must-read for every American."
- Susan Warden, Marriage and Family Therapist, Prairie Village,
"I loved Angie's War. It's a heartbreakingly beautiful story of love, and war, and loss, and redemption. You won't be able to put it down." - Ruth Walsh, Mind-Body Healer, Overland Park, Kansas
"Congratulations on Angie's War, Gary! Well done! I usually don't read war novels, but when we were together in the jungles of Vietnam, sharing foxholes in life-or-death firefights, we developed a bond, a connection that cannot be severed. Angie's War brings back both sad and joyful memories that we can continue to share in our remaining earthly years." - Specialist 4 John Baca, D Co., 1st Bn., 12th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, July, 1969 - February, 1970. Recipient of the Medal of Honor for Extreme Heroism on February 10, 1970
"Having fought alongside Gary DeRigne in the 1st Air Cavalry Division, I found myself sometimes remembering and weeping, and always reflecting, as I followed the characters in Angie's War from the jungles of Vietnam to the streets of Mogadishu, the mountains of Afghanistan, and the sands of Iraq, and always, always at home. This is a necessary read for everyone wanting to understand American warriors, their families, and their lives." - Basil B. Clark - Former Army Staff Sergeant and Retired University Professor, University of Pikeville, KY
"Intriguing and riveting account of the emotional traumatic impact on soldiers in combat. As an infantry combat veteran of Vietnam, I was impressed that every word rings true. DeRigne captures the pure essence of combat experiences and their impact upon us." Jonathan B. Dodson, Infantry Platoon Leader and Company Commander, 1st Cavalry Division, 1969 - 1970
"Gripping. Angie's War is an excellent read.
It is rare that a story reaches the reader on such an emotional level, yet
is so enlightening. DeRigne's novel delivers on both." - Dr.
