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.

Praise for Across the Pond:
“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.” –  Ron Kovic, Author of Born on the 4th of July
