""Even though women were not supposed to be on the front lines, on the front lines we were. Women were not supposed to be interned either, but it happened to us. People should know what we endured. People should know what we can endure."" -- Lt. Col. Madeline Ullom More than one hundred U.S. Army and Navy nurses were stationed in Guam and the Philippines at the beginning of World War II. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, five navy nurses on Guam became the first American military women of World War II to be taken prisoner by the Japanese. More than seventy army nurses survived five months of combat conditions in the jungles of Bataan and Corregidor before being captured, only to endure more than three years in prison camps. When freedom came, the U.S. military ordered the nurses to sign agreements with the government not to discuss their horrific experiences. Evelyn Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee have conducted numerous interviews with survivors and scoured archives for letters, diaries, and journals to uncover the heroism and sacrifices of these brave women.

On November 8, 1943, U.S. Army nurse Agnes Jensen stepped out of a cold rain in Catania, Sicily, into a C-53 transport plane. But she and twelve other nurses never arrived in Bari, Italy, where they were to transport wounded soldiers to hospitals farther from the front lines. A violent storm and pursuit by German Messerschmitts led to a crash landing in a remote part of Albania, leaving the nurses, their team of medics, and the flight crew stranded in Nazi-occupied territory. What followed was a dangerous nine-week game of hide-and-seek with the enemy, a situation President Roosevelt monitored daily. Albanian partisans aided the stranded Americans in the search for a British Intelligence Mission, and the group began a long and hazardous journey to the Adriatic coast. During the following weeks, they crossed Albania's second highest mountain in a blizzard, were strafed by German planes, managed to flee a town moments before it was bombed, and watched helplessly as an attempt to airlift them out was foiled by Nazi forces. Albanian Escape is the suspense-filled story of the only group of Army flight nurses to have spent any length of time in occupied territory during World War II. The nurses and flight crew endured frigid weather, survived on little food, and literally wore out their shoes trekking across the rugged countryside. Thrust into a perilous situation and determined to survive, these women found courage and strength in each other and in the kindness of Albanians and guerrillas who hid them from the Germans.

"In the winter of 1941, as Japanese bombs began to fall on Luzon, American Army and Navy nurses stationed in the Philippines suddenly found themselves caught in a fiery hell of war. Undaunted, they did everything in their power to aid the soldiers, setting up much needed field hospitals in the jungles of Bataan and the tunnels of Corregidor, where they tended to the most devastating injuries of war amidst the raining shells and shrapnel. But the worst was still to come: As Bataan and Corregidor fell, ninety-nine of the nurses were herded into internment camps, where they endured three years of suffering, brutality, and starvation. Here, in letters, diaries, and firsthand accounts, is the story of what really happened during those dark days, woven together into a compelling saga of women in war"--

A hidden disease stole my childhood and very nearly ruined my manhood. At age 6, I watched my parents have sex after violent fights. Having intercourse at age 11 and by 15, was a sexual predator. My life was filled with violence, and alcohol. During one especially traumatic day, both my father and uncle were murdered. As my father stabbed his youngest brother, that same brother shot him. After years of growing closer and closer to her, the name I give to the lust and sexual desire that almost drove me insane, I hit my bottom in a North Carolina penitentiary, for killing the husband of my lover. I could have gone on to live a life of bliss, pushing the nightmare I had lived deeper and deeper into the closets of my soul. Instead, I purposely went back to that dark place of memories and recorded the events that tell a story of ruin. How lust took the life of a talented young man to quench her insatiable desires.

Paul is also the author of TRINITARIAN LETTERS (Westbow Press, 2011). Website at: www.trinitarianletters.com HELL LETTERS demonstrates how the doctrine of hell and eternal torment came into the church in the fifth century AD through the efforts of St. Jerome and St. Augustine, with the translation of the Latin Vulgate, when the words hell and eternal torment and eternal damnation replaced the original meaning in various passages. The concept of hell and eternal torment was not preached in the early church for the first five hundred years of its existence. A positive gospel of love and reconciliation for humanity was. It was a positive message of hope, love, and the assurance of one’s salvation in Jesus Christ. The effort of this book is to recapture that first love of the gospel, which is good news for everyone. Paul was born in Philadelphia, Mississippi, in 1944, and grew up in Jackson, Mississippi. He participated in music, choir, band, symphony, and many youth sports of baseball, basketball, tennis, and collegiate golf.
