Great Books for Military Service Members, Veterans & Family!
Three Middle West Press titles now make up something of a non-fiction trilogy for writers and readers of military themes and topics. As such, they make great seasonal and professional gifts for past- and present military service members, veterans, and family.
Writes Editor-Publisher Randy Brown: “One principle that drives our military-themed work at Middle West Press, is that not all veterans are American Snipers and Navy SEALs; be proud of who you were, what you did as a job and what you tried to do in your country's name, and who you are now.”
- Things We Carry Still: Poems & Micro-Stories about Military Gear playfully explores military life around a single idea—“show and tell” from our closets and footlockers—while offering new inspirations for future writing!
- Why We Write: Craft Essays on Writing War helps define a genre/practice of "Military Writing" as a big tent—one that includes veterans, service members, civilians, novelists, poets, scholars, science-fiction writers, etc.
- Our Best War Stories: Prize-winning Poetry & Prose from the Col . Darron L. Wright Memorial Awards showcases some of the very best of military writing, as exemplified by the Col. Darron L. Wright Memorial Awards. These awards, administered annually by Line of Advance journal, are one of The Aiming Circle’s highest-recommended venues for military writing.
