Buy a book, send a free book to a serviceman or woman for the holidays

Announcing the Victory Corps Book Program:
Buy One Book, Get Another Sent Free to a Soldier, Marine, Sailor, Coast Guardsman or Airman

This holiday season, is offering to send a free book to a soldier, marine, sailor or airman because you bought a book on its Web Site. It’s a simple offer. We’ll send you the book you ordered and then send the same book to a serviceman or woman for free. All the buyer has to do is supply the name and address of the serviceman or woman and will send the same book you ordered to him or her. You pay for your book and its shipping charge. The Web Site pays for shipping the free book to the service member of your choice. If you don’t know anyone in the active military, we’ll select someone in the armed forces for you and ship that book to him or her in your name.

This special offer is open to buyers from the United States. As a buyer, all you have to do is complete your purchase using PayPal by Midnight on December 21st.

The Victory Corps Book Program is named after the Victory Corps that the US Government ran for high school students during World War II. The Web Site wants to reward those patriotic American men and women who are serving their country this holiday season.

So help us spread some cheer to those who are serving the rest of us in our attempt to spread justice and security in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea and Europe. Order a Southfarm Press book from today. Use PayPal to pay, list the name and address of the soldier you want the free book sent to on the comments section of the PayPal order form, and we’ll do our best to get your book and the soldier’s book to them by December 25th. Or tell us to pick a serviceman or woman for you. We’ll let you know to whom the book was sent.

Each free book will include a gift card with your name shown as the thoughtful person giving the book.

Associate Justice Hugo Black said long ago, “Here’s hope, strength and love to those who give hope, strength and love.” That’s our people who are serving in our Armed Forces right now. Here are some suggestions of gift books on for our men and women in the Armed Forces:

Airmen and women might appreciate receiving Janey: A Little Plane in a Big War, Flying Low or The Grasshopper That Roared. Today, automatic drones fly over battlefields to observe the action and direct fire. These three books recount the experiences of real men in Piper Cubs over the battlefields of Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, and in the book The Grasshopper That Roared, New Guinea and the Philippines. For George Patton fans, Janey: A Little Plane in a Big War has accounts that military readers shouldn’t miss.

Ground pounders might like to read Dudley C. Gould’s Follow Me Up Fools Mountain or Good Night Love. The Military Book Club praised Fools Mountain: “Written by a rifle-platoon leader…[this is] a brand of combat memoir we’re rarely treated to. Relatively little is written with as much realism and verve.” Good Night Love is a perceptive look into front line combat that will automatically promote the cause of peace in Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world .

Navy men or women might like to read about the sinking of the USS St. Lo (CVE-63) as recounted by a Piper Cub pilot while he was on the deck of the USS Fanshaw Bay (CVE-70). That’s in The Grasshopper That Roared. Or Frank Bogart’s account of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th in Till War Do Us Part. Frank wasn’t on a battleship on Battleship Row. He was an ensign forced to take command of the USS Gamble, an old four-stack destroyer minelayer after his ship’s captain had a mental breakdown while enemy bombs and fighters swooped around his little ship as it attempted to shield the battleships.

Our three facts quiz books will test yours and a serviceman’s knowledge of World War II or Vietnam. Inexpensive books, Vietnam War Facts Quiz, World War II Facts Quiz Europe and World War II Facts Quiz The Pacific are all ball breakers.

Know someone in the military that is an Abraham Lincoln fan? Abe Lincoln and the Frontier Folk of New Salem recounts how Lincoln developed character as a young man that he drew upon during The Civil War.

For that woman in the service that you know, order In the Hands of My Enemy. She’ll read about one of Norway’s heroes during World War II, Sigrid Heide. Heide was a courier in the Norwegian underground captured by the Nazis that refused to break under intense torture and isolation. Her torture included a device that separated Heide’s kneecap from the bones around it. She was crippled for life. Publishers Weekly called this book “Searing.”

So order a book for yourself today on In doing so, you’ll be sending a holiday gift to one of our Armed Forces' heroes. Thank you.--Walter Haan,
