Military Writers Society of America Reviewer Praises The Yanks Are Starving as “Vivid” and “Admirable.”

Award-winning author and military veteran Donald Farinacci calls The Yanks Are Starving “vivid” and an “admirable book.”

Reviewing Glen Craney’s historical novel about the Bonus Army for the Military Writers Society of America, Mr. Farinacci wrote:

“Author Glen Craney has chosen the medium of the historical novel to capture the sense of the times, the era of the great Depression. In so doing he has drawn a vivid picture of not only men being deprived of their veterans’ rights, but of their human rights as well. . . . The Veterans Bonus March was a momentous event in American history and Craney performs a valuable service by chronicling it in this admirable book.”

Reviewer praises The Spider and the Stone as “the best historical fiction that I have read in years.”

Nancy at To Read, Or Not To Read calls The Spider and the Stone the “[b]est Historical fiction I have read in years. . . . If I could give this book 10 willies I would. But alas I can only give 5 and I do.”

“Glen Craney has brought to life a time that was fraught with danger,” the reviewer wrote. “His characters are vibrant and well rounded. I was transported from my comfy chair to a time when comfort was hard to find. Where men and women fought for an independence from England’s rule. Where hero’s were made from common folk’s and the love of their country.

From the beginning to the end there is not a dull moment. The fact and the fiction meld together seamlessly. . . . I look forward to reading more books from Glen Craney.”

Historical Novel Society reviewer Bryan Dumas praises The Yanks Are Starving in the HNS February edition as “a wonderful source of historical fact wrapped in a compelling novel.”

“Each of the characters is written in a depth that makes them come alive,” Dumas wrote. “The second section on the Bonus Army is well written, vivid, and highlights every aspect of the clash between the war vets and the federal government. . . . If you want to learn about one of America‚Äôs darkest days, one that rarely gets any attention, this is a book that will both teach and entertain.”
