War Hawks
A bestselling novel.

After seeing his men suffer devastating losses in the Korean War, Marine Lt. Frank Strickland embarks on a one-man campaign that reveals some shocking and intriguing corruption straight out of the Truman White House via his secret operations with the CIA. It was the preparations for the Vietnam War that no one knew about except for the French, who were deeply involved in losing their own war in that country.. This is a story based on true events concerning the explosive growth for power by the CIA in foreign lands, all authorized by the president of the United States. When CIA Director William Casey warned the author of War Hawks to "Not publish this story," Gazzaniga became even more interested in the CIA's history and despite phone calls against his efforts from additional agents, he researched in depth the tale of the CIA's grab for power during the Korean War. Gazzaniga began this effort in the mid-eighties. This is the first publication of his work. Read Chapter One Now.
