History Into Fiction: The Writer's Art of Recreating the Past

The Historical Novel Society reviews The Yanks Are Starving: “[A] wonderful source of historical fact wrapped in a compelling novel.”

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’s darkest days, one that rarely gets any attention, this is a book that will both teach and entertain.”

The Compulsive Reader Review Says Glen Craney “Deserves Praise” For The Yanks Are Starving

Ruth Latta of The Compulsive Reader wrote in her review this week that “[I] know of no other fiction writer who has made this brave, tragic protest movement the main theme of a novel, until now. Glen Craney deserves praise for recognizing the significance and dramatic potential of the Bonus Army story and developing it in The Yanks are Starving.”

Ms. Latta’s full review of the historical novel can be found here.

Honored earlier this year by Foreword Reviews as a Book-of-the-Year Award Finalist, the novel tells the story of the charismatic hobo who lead twenty thousand desperate World War I veterans into the nation’s capital during the summer of 1932 to demand payment of their service compensation bonus.

The epic leads the reader across a memorable panorama of American history, from the Boxer Rebellion in China to the Plain of West Point, from the persecution of conscientious objectors to the horrors of the Marne, and from the Hoovervilles of the heartland to the pitiful Anacostia encampment in the bowels of the nation’s capital. It culminates with the shocking but little-known story of the political intrigue and government betrayal that culminated in the only pitched battle ever fought between two American armies under the same flag.
