Oakland, CA, February 11, 2015 --( "Across The Pond" by Michael McCormick is the story of a young American who fights in the Vietnam War for his country, only to be rejected when he comes home. The author based the book on his experience as a U.S. Marine who served in combat.

From the Foreword by author Ron Kovic, Born on the 4th of July
"This little book grips the reader from the beginning and does not let go. It is written with the violence and fury of Leon Uris's 'Battle Cry', and the tenderness and compassion of a simple poet.... It is a poignant reminder that many of the stories of that war are yet to be told. I believe it will be recognized as one of the important books to come out of that war and McCormick will rank with the other writers of his generation, equaling their intensity, integrity, and impact....With an emotional intensity that is sometimes overwhelming, 'Across the Pond' is a short, violent, extremely powerful forty-two-page ride through hell that you will never forget."

Readers can download and read this book for free at,, obooko and Open Library. The book is also available for a limited time on NetGalley.
