Henry Brown

Biography

"Fresh and different is the best way to describe Henry Brown’s writing. From the tough-guy military fiction of Hell & Gone to the delightfully satirical superheroes of The Greater Good, you’ll find something completely different in Mr. Brown’s work." - conservativefiction.com

I've always been an action-adventure guy. Normal, well-adjusted people may have grown too mature for movies like Star Wars or The Road Warrior; or fictional heroes like Conan, Tarzan or Mack Bolan. Well, that stuff left a permanent mark on me.

So much for being normal and well-adjusted!

My own real-life adventure began as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division, at 18 years old. OK, maybe it wasn't such a great adventure, but I'm proud to have served my country, and in an elite unit with such battlefield distinctions. My military escapades eventually led me through experiences in other corners of the US Army, as well as the USMC and Naval Reserve. My travels in life have taken me to the Caribbean; Central America; the Middle East; Alaska; Hawaii and all over the USA. I've traveled on trains, planes, automobiles, helicopters and ocean-going vessels. I've been trained in the use of rifles; bayonets; hand grenades; automatic rifles; machineguns; grenade launchers; anti-tank rockets and missiles. I even got to play with artillery and tanks. I also had plenty of opportunity to observe the behavior of my fellow human beings at their best and worst.

My debut novel, Hell and Gone, is a deliberate throwback to commando tales of yesteryear like The Dirty Dozen. While working on my next novel (the sequel, Tier Zero--a deliberate throwback to the golden age of men's adventure), I released some shorter tales...pulp fiction, you could call it...in other genres that tickle my fancy.

Smashwords book reviews by Henry Brown

  • Rolling Thunder on May 01, 2018

    I'm happy to give this book 5 stars. Berent tells a rip-snorting story of the air war over Vietnam. The characters are great--Hollywood prodigal Court Bannister, soul sick rich boy Toby Parker, and devout killer Wolf Lochert. Much like W.E.B. Griffin, Berent seems to like privileged, wealthy characters who don't have to serve, but do anyway and prove to be natural, superb warriors. Not easy for me to relate, but the author did a fine job winning my sympathy. And you will probably learn more relevant information about Vietnam in this one novel than you can from any and every history book that covers US involvement in the conflict. I've read plenty of fiction and non-fiction about Vietnam, and this has become my favorite so far--just from one reading. I can't believe I only just now got to it. But I fully intend to read the next one, STEEL TIGER (Wings of War). If that one is as good as this one, I may read the entire series.
