A book about allegiance, devastation, morality and
For the first time, close quarters battle expert Chuck Habermehl, author of Combat Proven Tactics: Small Unit Urban Warfare; The Art of High Risk Entry and
Police Combatives: Violent Encounter
Resolution, delves into poetic writing
about the warrior – the content of which is not for the weak at heart.
In Depictions: Poems about warriors and war,
Habermehl puts the reader right there –
you see the tactical and violent reality
of war and the grievous effects on the warrior. Battles from the Civil War to modern war are detailed, as are the segregation
of the American Indian, the devastation of the wounded warrior and the travesty of the missing soldier. As expected
from a tactician, Habermehl's style is blunt and unceremonious, as seen in the poem Victory released on YouTube.
The visual elements created from his writing,
together with illustrations, remind the reader that the price of freedom is tremendous and the ravages of war everlasting.
Depictions has over 30 poems and is 78 pages. Net proceeds from the sales of the book go to help American wounded
warriors and their families. Dreams video
released for Veterans Day 2012.
