Former Peekskill resident, Denis W. Flood has published his novel which graphically depicts the Viet Nam War and the combat death of a Marine soldier.

What makes this story of special interest is the flashbacks and interwoven threads with Peekskill as the background home of fictional Corporal Jackie Carroll.

Not only is the book filled with familiar names such as St. Josephs Home and various streets but it also details Depew Park and a track meet that takes place on the oval cinder track.

Denis calls upon his own past as a champion runner in high school, college and the Marine Corps and

Having been wounded in Viet Nam himself, he has woven his own experiences into a most interesting story which will bring back memories of Peeksill and its familiar places.
