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.

Some very poignant and moving poems, that almost made you feel you are in the trenches with all the fighting men. "The unforgotten soldier" i found really takes you into the thoughts of one on the front line, his fears and hopes.
