David McDonald is something of a unique individual and confounds many with his achievements, having suffered five strokes he has impaired short term memory and impaired cognitive skills.
Despite this he has written seven books of War Poetry, all of which are well received, and another Novella, he struggles with grammar and refuses to surrender to his physical and mental limitations.
I served with David during his eighteen years of Military Service, an outstanding soldier he has used his past to inspire his present in his writing.
I leave it to the reader to decide but this man is worth the respect so many of us who know him display, he is one of the few who fights for the many.
His first publications, There are no Unwounded Soldiers, I Never Raised My Son to be a Soldier and Every Soldier Needs a Soul form a Trilogy of poetry and display his ability to use words to tell stories.
The Lost Century is a result of his prolific writing during his treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and contains some hard reading.
The latest and most acclaimed of his works are "A Heart Without Words" and "A Heart with Wounds" which form a brace of books dealing with Emotions.

If you are a fan of war stories or are just looking for a great book you are in luck. This book hooks you from the first page and you won’t be able to put it down till its last. The plot is very engaging and all of the characters are very believable and have a lot of depth. This is a very human story that really shows the personal struggle of soldiers with families. The book is fast paced and relatively short for a novel making it a very exciting read. This book is certainly worth taking a look at.
