R. Grey Hoover

Author R. Grey Hooverabout this book: Kicker is a thrilling historic novel about the author's family during World War II. It is based on actual experiences and official records. Eight years in the writing, the book tells the story of a man whose sense of patriotism tears him from his family and takes him to the steaming jungles of Burma where he fights to do his duty and survive the terrors off war. It also tells the story of his family as they cope with shortages, rationing and the uncertainty they will ever see their loved one again.

This book was written to honor all those who have fought to keep America free. Its purpose is to increase awareness of the sacrifices of the men and women who fought in the little known China-Burma-India theater of WWII and their families.

The author comes from a family with a tradition of service to America that spans 220 years and includes the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom.
