An American Adviser in Vietnam: My Story

by Lt. Col. (Ret) Joe A. Putnam

In 1967, Joe Putnam, fresh out of officer training school, is shipped overseas to Vietnam as part of President Johnson’s American Adviser program. Putnam would be one of the American soldiers advising the South Vietnamese Army on how to conduct a war against the North Vietnamese Army and their allies in the south, the Viet Cong. This plan would supposedly keep the Communists at bay without actually getting the U.S. into full-fledged war in Southeast Asia.

In his military memoir, now retired Lt. Col. Joe A. Putnam perfectly captures the action, the people, the battles, and of course the mixed feelings of a young man far away from home in a foreign land.

Most of all, even now, Putnam wonders why he survived numerous harrowing episodes when others did not.

Unorganized Crime: Journey to Redemption

by Synova Cantrell

Have you ever been arrested? If so you have a right to an attorney.

Did you know a gangster, a murdering judge, a thief, and a supreme court judge helped you get the right?

Raised in a mob-controlled suburb of Chicago, Sidney Heard grew up wanting to be a gangster. He was on probation by the age of thirteen, and continued building his criminal resume over the next half a century. He was a professional arsonist for nearly twenty years; escaped from jail twice; ran a gold scandal grossing over a quarter of a million dollars, and that’s just to name a few of his illegal escapades. To top it off, he played a role in one of the most important Supreme Court Decisions of all time (Gideon vs. Wainwright).

Sidney’s underworld connections ran from the Chicago-based Italians, to the Mexican Mafia. He even worked undercover for the Federal Government at one point in his life. However, all of Sidney’s so-called glory would come with a price. While working undercover for the D.E.A., Sidney became hooked on drugs. He soon found himself staring at another round of jail time, a massive criminal record, and pushing his fiftieth birthday. Would he ever find peace? Can a professional criminal ever change his ways and become a productive member of society?

Unorganized crime is the thrilling true crime biography of this ex-gangster from Chicago. It covers prison life, organized crime, and white collar crime all in one action-packed, easy-reading, narrative non-fiction format.
