You are as Good as your Word

I agree that DeMille is one of the best writers of our times. His proven research of topics repeatedly lends accuracy and intrigue to all of his stories.
In Word of Honor the conflict Ben Tyson has between honoring his Word to his men during the Vietnam war, and honoring the trust of his wife is immediately apparent. Ben's strength is displayed during the crisis of accusation and the court martial to follow. His love and dedication by and to his wife and family are obviously strong, and outweigh the burden of feeling helpless and unsupported by his government. Honor and honesty win out in the end. The book far outweighs the movie that that was based on this story (but did not tend to convey the strength of topic). If you saw the movie, expect to be Wow'd by this book!

Keeps you on the edge of your seat

DeMille is one of the best writers of our times. His in-depth research provides believable backdrops to the adventure and intrigue of all his stories. In "Word of Honor" we quickly empathize with Ben Tyson's inner pain, while at the same time we become frustrated with what appears to be his inability to defend himself. We soon learn that he believes in his word of honor above all else, even if he is held responsible for an unspeakable atrocity committed in 1968 during the Vietnam War. This book convincingly depicts the pain, sorrow and heartbreak that most soldiers experienced in this horrific conflict.
