Fear is something Private Carolyn Mendez can’t admit to. Yet, as she arrives in Saudi Arabia, for Desert Storm, deploying to war, it’s all she can think about. All she has is herself, and even that is scary.
Desert Storm war veteran Linda Maye Adams shows the diversity of what war is like for the women who deploy in this collection of short stories and poetry. The stories run from “First Night,” and “Between Black and White,” because war seldom ends when the war does.
The poems include:
A Woman Goes to War
Once Upon a Time
The Lonely Sounds of War
No Safe Places
Just Like Me

Technology is taking over the military. To help money, robots now perform many of the duties like cooking. Private First Class Rachel Drake wonders what the next steps will be. She doesn’t like the answers she is getting. She thinks they will be replacing soldiers with robots soon. But that’s far from what the truth will be, and far more dangerous.

One hundred years ago, in 1918, the Great War ended after four terrible years. Never had the world seen such a conflict. All touched by its scythe hoped we would never be thusly reaped again. Their hopes were but desperate dreams. Since that first armistice, there have been many more battles, and thousands have given their lives or their health to preserve freedom and escape from tyranny.
A hundred years after the first armistice we still remember and honour those brave souls. But still the soldiers fall, for the War to End all Wars did not.

I thought I would never do any writing guides, because I feel like I still don’t know enough yet to do one. But sometimes there’s so little information on a topic that it calls to a writer, and both of these did that. Links to blurbs are still being updated.

The voices of women veterans are not well-represented generally. While I prefer to do it in other kinds of fiction, here are some historical stories about the experience, and even some poetry. The pages to the first three are still coming.
