shares from his World War II novels
FIRST AMONG MEN
and his brand new book
INTO THE WET
The author, Jerry Coker (a former Sea Rancher), listened to his father slowly unravel and dispel his demons releasing bits and pieces of the story over his lifetime. A regular Army infantryman with the US Army’s 7th Infantry Division in May of 1943, his father could not forget the horrors of those bloody weeks in the snow and freezing rain. A combat veteran himself as a US Marine rifleman during the Vietnam War,Jerry Coker decided, after shelving a corporate and business career, the story in his first novel needed to be told. His second WWII novel, Into the Wet, has just been published. It is set in Australia.
