Haunted by the past and confused about the future, he turns to God seeking forgiveness and redemption. Three people must work through the repercussions of a decision made long ago before any of them can look toward a new future.

An introductory military history of the American Civil War, Shades of Blue and Gray places the 1861-1865 conflict within the broad context of evolving warfare. Emphasizing technology and its significant impact, Hattaway includes valuable material on land and sea mines, minesweepers, hand grenades, automatic weapons, the Confederate submarine, and balloons. The evolution of professionalism in the American military serves as an important connective theme throughout. Hattaway extrapolates from recent works by revisionists William Skelton and Roy Roberts to illustrate convincingly that the development of military professionalism is not entirely a post-Civil War phenomenon. The author also incorporates into his work important new findings of recent scholars such as Albert Castel (on the Atlanta Campaign), Reid Mitchell (on soldiers' motivation), Mark Grimsley (on "hard war"), Brooks D. Simpson (on Ulysses S. Grant), and Lauren Cook Burgess (on women who served as soldiers, disguised as men). In addition, Hattaway comments on some of the best fiction and nonfiction available in his recommended reading lists, which will both enlighten and motivate readers. Informative and clearly written, enhanced by graceful prose and colorful anecdotes, Shades of Blue and Gray will appeal to all general readers.

"Seven Shades of Blue" is organized in career experience segments, from entry to "Curtains." This book provides the reader with an exciting inside look at a career cop's life and the challenges that police face throughout a full career. It is written in a style similar to Joseph Wambaugh's, and in a format that mirrors Mark Baker's "COPS." However, the author's experiences with the military and six different agencies over four decades makes for a unique read. The reader will be able to experience numerous real-life situations, including; my role as a correction officer in quelling a major disturbance at Attica, which resulted in a bloody stabbing death. My time as a street cop on a domestic call where a 270 lb. male had a fork embedded in his forehead, and my travels to China to train the Chinese police in hostage negotiations before the Olympics. On one of my tours, I had to guard a serial killer's victim who survived a vicious knife attack. Also included is my time in University Policing when officers responded to a call of a naked man in a snowbank screaming. It turns out he had hot sauce poured over his genitals as part of a hazing ritual and said he was just trying to cool the heat. The reader will be captivated by these stories and much more. This book provides a fascinating insight into the men and women behind the badge.
