I am not a professional writer, but my wife bought me a PC, and I started using it to write my autobiography about my training and experiences as a Bombardier-Navigator during World War II. In my story, I vividly describe the 35 combat bombing missions I flew in a B-17 aircraft. I have since finished it at 301 pages and have entitled it "BAPTISM OF WAR".
The story is as much about my wife as it is about me, for throughout the whole story, I have woven many intimate, personal, tender, love scenes that were actually the catalyst and inspiration that kept me going.
I also have expounded on mankind's propensity to war, and the need for our country to maintain a well-armed, modern military force, that is ever-vigilant,for less than that, our entire future is imperiled.
In the Prologue and Epilogue of the story,I offer some unchallengeable evidence and facts that most certainly should discourage anyone from ever wanting to wage war again. But that is probably being too optimistic, for the world has always been full of madmen and terrorists who fancy themselves taking-over-the world, and are bent on the destruction of their fellowmen, triggered by some insane impulse to do evil alone. Only a strong,well-equipped,well-maintained, armed force can ever successfully combat and restrain the likes of those kinds of lunatics, and its quite obvious that we need to be protected from the imminent dangers and threats they pose to mankind. Less than that, the future of our great Nation stands in dire peril!!!
In order for me to get my book published, I need an experienced Literary Agent or Publisher, who can pursue the entire effort. Because of my age and declining health,I am unable to do so myself. This undoubtedly will be the beginning and end of my writing career. I would sincerely appreciate any suggestions or help that anyone can provide me.
Thank you, Majorjoe
