A masterpiece. It is not only beautifully written, but indicates a capacity for research that would have been envied by Tolstoy.

My sincerest complements ... from your in-the-moment writing style, to your command of factual details .I will recommend the book to my friends.
-Amateur historian, Phoenix
What is striking as one reads the book is that it reads like the most tautly-paced work of fiction. I, a week before my first year law school finals, picked the book up for the first time. I did not put it down until I had read the book in its entirety.
-Law student, Seattle
I am truly and totally captivated ... This book is a rare find and a painful but worthy bit of Americana that I think will find its way to Hollywood
-Attorney, Hartford, CT
When I finished ON AMERICAN SOIL I felt informed about the realities of World War II and entertained by the description of events, not unlike the trial described in Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird”. I am impressed by the quality of writing and rich content.
-University administrator, Seattle
The story is incredibly animated even though it is non-fiction. It reminded me of what H.G. Bissinger said about Friday Night Lights, that he couldn’t have created a fictional story like what he saw in Odessa, TX.
-University student, Seattle
I just wanted to tell how much I enjoyed your book ON AMERICAN SOIL. It was a very interesting and enjoyable book to read, so much so that I was sorry when I finished it. Some books that I come across are so poorly written that I end up skimming through them, but your book was so well written that It was pleasure to read it, and it held my attention to the point that I finished it over the course of two evenings.
-University auditor/Army veteran, Pittsburg
It is truly an amazing story and told so well. As an Army officer living on officer row at Fort Lawton, I just couldn't put it down.
-Major, United States Army, Seattle
Thanks for taking on such a huge and important topic. I had hoped for years someone would do it and I can’t think of a better person to have done the job.
-Federal archivist, Seattle
I thought you did an excellent job in making the issues clear while still maintaining an editorially objective tone. I also liked the way that you covered the experiences of the Italians as well as the experiences of the African-Americans.
On Friday last I purchased ON AMERICAN SOIL, and began it with interest on Sunday evening after dinner. By 3:30 A.M. this morning I finished and put it down on my nightstand. In the stolen reading hours in between I was completely gripped by the story, and your stunning writing and ability to tell a tale.
I couldn't put it down. As a long time local historian, I give you and your wife a loud standing ovation for a great contribution to our regional history! ... This is a great book and I will enjoy telling friends about it.
-Historian, Bainbridge, WA
ON AMERICAN SOIL is an important book and a fascinating read.
