The Evans' Chronicles: A Family at War
William G. Williams, James N. Logue
Wars affect the people who fight them in many different forms, from bodily harm to questions of reason to absolute dedication. There are different reactions and consequences for every person.
In this story, the fictional Evans family offers their best in America’s ten most prominent wars. Each one who serves leaves behind their sense of military duty. A description of that duty is written in story form by family members for the future. The first nine who fight for their country leave a rich family history for the tenth fighter, a woman.
Some survive, but with different attitudes. Some limp back to the family ranch. Some give their all. They find that their time away from home is governed not by them but by other forces of nature, by people whom they barely know, and by enemies they never meet.
The consequences of each in battle gives strength to those in the family who follow from generation to generation. Each generation of the Evans family become more important to their country.
"The saga of the Evans’ family is an absorbing journey across the length of America’s military history. Readers of Bill Williams’ Days of Darkness: The Gettysburg Civilians will not want to miss this one."
"Masterful story tellers, William G. Williams and James N. Logue possess the uncanny ability of breathing life into each of the ten fictitious members of the Evans’ clan. The reader will have no difficulty in inserting themselves into any of the military exploits of this military family as they experience the ten major wars from the Revolutionary War through and including the Middle East conflicts of the early 21st Century. The Evans’ Chronicles: A Family at War is a historically accurate and well written fictional work that every citizen of this country can take patriotic pride in reading."
"I highly recommend this superb, realistic, compelling, emotional, genuine, and riveting historical novel of the Evans family spanning nine generations beginning with Thomas Evans fighting during the Revolutionary War to the last male, Glyn, who served during the Vietnam War. The chronicle is viewed through the eyes of Lavinia, a West Point graduate."
