About David McDonald

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.

John Holdsworth


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.

Review by: Jeff Taylor on Sep. 17, 2012 :
After reading the last book in this series I had to check out this one. It continues its look and the hardships and difficulties that every soldier faces. David (the Author) writes in such a perfectly descriptive way it transports you right to the scene. More of these poems have tell the story of soldiers feeling betrayed and abandoned by the politicians at home and I particularly liked “Who Went to War?” Any person that has a heart is sure to connect and enjoy this collection.
