Synopsis: An impressively crafted suspense thriller of a novel, "Bullets and Bandages" by Robert J. Saniscalchi was inspired by the true stories of a US Army Field Medic, Vietnam 68-69. Through those stories, Rob was given the unique war based insights that he seamless wove into his narrative driven story.
 
It is interesting to note that parts of Bullets and Bandages: Bond of Brothers" derives Saniscalchi's own experiences, and that time period in our history of conflict in Vietnam. The trials and victories of Rob and his comrades pull the reader into a world of survival through willpower, tenacity, and wit.
 
"Bullets and Bandages: Bond of Brothers" is ultimately a story of love, faith, friendship and humanity in a time of war and deals with what was it like for our military men as they fought together to survive in the jungles of Vietnam.
 
Critique: The kind of riveting read that will linger in the mind and memory long after the novel itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf, "Bullets and Bandages: Bond of Brothers" is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to community library General Fiction collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that "Bullets and Bandages: Bond of Brothers" is also readily available in an inexpensive digital book format (Kindle, $0.99). Author's Site     Details Goodreads

Freedom's Light by Robert J Saniscalchi  author-review
It was the end of the innocence for the United States as terrorists led a multi-pronged attack on American soil on September 11, 2001 and Robert Saniscalchi has captured the shock, the horror and our country’s answer inFREEDOM’S LIGHT.

What begins with three brothers bonding on a hunting trip will take one of them away on a top secret military mission to thwart another possible attack, this time with his brothers-in-arms, leaving the woman he loves behind.

Robert Saniscalchi has re-created the chaotic terror of that day and taken it into the realm of both its reality and a fictionalized aftermath as he deftly nails the emotional upheaval of a nation brought stunned, to its knees, unaware of another eminent attack or the bravery of the unsung heroes who risked their lives for home and heart, good versus evil.

This is my second book by Mr. Saniscalchi and I think that this one demonstrates a strong background for MY LIFE FOR HER. Well written, readers will feel the past come to life as well as the drive of an elite squad of patriotic warriors pledged to risk it all. If you want a slice of history, of the eternal battle of good versus evil, this is an amazingly gripping read.

I received a complimentary borrowed edition from Robert J. Saniscalchi. This is my honest and voluntary review.

This year, though, there were no sandy strolls. This year, it was all about getting back to normal after the emotional rollercoaster, the nightmare the family had experienced. It was a nice warm late summer day, Rob tried to put it all in perspective, tried to think about the good things in his life. As the doctor wisely advised, he needed to “put the past to bed.” The sky was clear blue, with a few puffy, white clouds floating by in the light breeze. What a simple pleasure it was for him to hear the birds chirping and to watch the squirrels nibble acorns while they scurried around the big oak trees. Some of the summer flowers were still in bloom, and the earthy smell of fresh-cut grass wafted through the air. The warm sunshine felt good as Rob reflected on his life since he left the U.S. Army and bought the M
