Too many fathers and mothers know the feeling of pride but also the dread that follows a son or daughter going off to war. And along with dread, when the worst you can imagine happens, there is sorrow … and anger. Sometimes there is more. Join author B.A. Sherman at his most stirring and shocking best as he imagines the horror of war from a parent’s view. This is a story of love, hatred and revenge so gripping and so true to life, it’s hard to tell where reality ends and frightening fantasy takes over. Told in both the quiet streets of the U.S. and the explosive sands of Afghanistan, The Chief and His Marine goes where few have gone…and written about the experience. But war is real and likely here to stay, he will tell you. Worth thinking about, and deciding what you might do if it were your son or daughterout there. Or you. These are the thoughts to grapple with in this story. They will make you hug your child a little tighter today, as you follow the Chief and Nick, his Marine—just out of school and so proud to be serving his country—into the killing fields of hell. The Chief and His Marine is B.A. Sherman’s first military thriller, inspired by true events.
The Chief and His Marine is a poignant, moving, incredible novel written by the incredible B.A. Sherman. As my husband is a Recon Marine, I have always loved reading books about the military; this book caught my eye in particular because it deals with a topic that is difficult but important. As well as this, this topic is told through a perspective that is not generally used, so that is why this book caught my attention so quickly. Because this book is a military book I have to admit that I had high hopes for it; that is why I am so pleased to write that The Cheif and His Marine is a sensational, incredible book that needs to be read by everyone!
The Chief and His Marine is the story of a family affected by war, it is a poignant, emotional story but at the same time, it is inspiring with a few funny moments.

The premise of the story is just this but of course, so much more happens but this book is not a book to be spoiled because it is utterly brilliant.
