Guns and White FaceseBook - 2014
Upon returning from the war in Afghanistan, Major Wes Atwell was hoping to heal his inner scars. He would never get the chance. A gripping and haunting tale of survival, Guns and White Faces takes readers on a perilous trek into the most brutal reaches of man's physical and mental being. A platoon of U.S. Army soldiers is given the mission of guiding a group of medical researchers deep into the rainforests of western Africa in search of a mysterious disease. As the officer in charge of the mission, Atwell must overcome his dark, troubled past in order to lead the journey into the unknown. Along the way, Atwell builds a trust with those around him and makes a promise he knows he should never have made. When the team arrives at the remote village of Budo, the soldiers and doctors discover a unimaginable nightmare that soon has them fighting for survival against the village, the disease, and each other. As Atwell leads the desperate battle to keep his people alive, he discovers a shade of war far darker and more horrific than any he had previously known - one that will ruthlessly demonstrate the true strength, courage - and evil - that man is capable of. A military thriller that takes no prisoners, Guns and White Faces provides a captivating glimpse of a nightmare - relentless, thought-provoking, and not too far removed from the realities of war today.
