A Long Way From Home by SFC (R) Christian Warren Freed Published by CaryPress

CaryPress announces the latest highly anticipated military memoir from Raleigh, NC, author Christian Warren Freed.

Raleigh, NC, September 24, 2014

War is Hell. Anyone who has ever put on a uniform and purposefully went to where the enemy was intent on killing him can attest to that. But instead of a singular definition of Hell that religion preaches, war is so much more.

It is Hell on the families left behind. Hell on the mind and spirit. Hell on the nerves. Hell on coming home and trying to remember where you fit in. Yes, war is Hell. A Long Way From Home is the compilation of my experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002-2006. It gives first-hand accounts of some of the most gruesome fighting and a behind the scenes look at what really went on from various levels.

286 pages in length, A Long Way From Home is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the memoir category. U.S. wholesale distribution is through Ingram and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, with a suggested retail price of $15.

ISBN: 978-1631030086
