About this title

Synopsis:

Iwo Jima Marine veteran Jack Britton has carried the horror of combat and the loss of his young wife and his buddies with him for the past 60 years. Now, in the last 36 hours of his life in a hospital intensive care unit, he revisits those aspects of his life and grapples with his long-suffering questions about fate and self-doubt through a psychological phenomenon known as sundown syndrome.

From the Back Cover:

"Ray Elliott's IWO BLASTED AGAIN truly captures the emotional hold that impacts the men who fought on Iwo Jima and is a stark reminder of the price of freedom." -- JACK LUCAS, Iwo Jima veteran, Medal of Honor recipient and author of "Indestructible" ... "Marine veteran Ray Elliott understands American war and warfare as few people do. His work is honest and raw and filled with truth, in the tradition of the great American war novelists who precede him." -- KAYLIE JONES, author of "A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries" and daughter of celebrated World War II novelist James Jones ... "Ray Elliott is making himself a much-needed spokesman for those soldiers who have survived a war, but not the horrifying results of that war. In a culture that celebrates 'support the troops,' this kind of work is important as a reminder of what battle can do to those innocents who are sent out to kill and be killed." -- JACK STOKES, retired English professor, playwright and World War II Army veteran ... "In IWO BLASTED AGAIN, Ray Elliott explores the subject of war and its aftermath in a realistic novel written in the powerful tradition of James Jones' masterpiece, 'The Thin Red Line.'" -- Dr. George Hendrick, University of Illinois professor emeritus of English, author and editor of "To Reach Eternity: The Letters of James Jones" ... "Ray Elliott has produced a unique portrayal of two vital aspects of what many combat veterans experience in their lifetime. He presents a vivid, very accurate, graphically true depiction of the horrors the individual encounters and endures in battle. For the remainder of their lives, most veterans extend great effort to blot out memories of their gruesome war experiences. To some degree they succeed. But, inevitably, it seems that in their later years, these long-dormant, suppressed memories return with surprising, haunting clarity." -- COL. GERALD RUSSELL, Iwo Jima veteran, U.S.M.C. retired
