About this title


A Trumpet for Freedomis the story of one man's adventures in three wars.
Looking at three sequential periods in history - World War II, Korea and Vietnam, Carmichael explores the causes and effects of these wars in the perspective of history, the qualified views of others and his own personal experiences.
Written in three parts, Part I deals with the mysterious legacy of Don Carmichael and John Close, whose ancestry tends to overlap, confuse and cause consternation to the author when revealed at the death of his mother. The search goes on from 1968 to present, though dormant because of a dead-end in information.
Part II takes the reader back to the end of the Korean War where the second book ends and places the Vietnam War in perspective with Don Carmichael and John Close playing a quasi-fictional and non-fictional part.
Part III is an analysis of the Vietnam War from its inception to the end (1945-1975) by two old soldiers: Don Carmichael and Joe Fix with a perspective of those who have analizyed this war before. We look at Harry Summers, Bruce Palmer, Phil Davidson, et al and add our thought to the pot for historical consumption.
Some final words about the time and circumstance of the search for roots through the guise of soldiering - for posterity.
