This afternoon, I shipped off the 283-page manuscript of my second nonfiction book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, for final editorial review.
During the next week or so, I’ll be working with my graphic artist to complete the cover art and with my marketing experts to finalize details of the book’s launch. If all goes well, THE CLAPPER MEMO should be on the market by the end of the month.
In THE CLAPPER MEMO, I’ll share details of a 40-year turf war that span the globe — from the Pentagon to universities across the country and places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Guantanamo Bay and Mexico. Plus, I connect the dots between three memos signed by top DoD officials, including Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., and the “Green-on-Blue” attacks (a.k.a., “insider attacks”) by so-called “allies” in Afghanistan against their U.S. and coalition colleagues.
While you wait for the release of THE CLAPPER MEMO, be sure to read my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice. It’s available in paperback and ebook via most online booksellers, including Amazon.com.
Bob McCarty is the author of two nonfiction books, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (Oct ’11) and THE CLAPPER MEMO (May ’13).
