How did a runt from an impoverished U.S. farm family come to be a sensitive, but highly-trained, killer? Why wasn't he decorated? How did he live through so many horrors of war in both overt and covert actions? Why did he become a deserter and how was he never charged? How did he obtain Australian citizenship, serve in that country's army and eventually marry a beautiful, rich and clever girl?
Cut Off is about a man's extraordinary survival skills. The reader follows him on an adventure as he undergoes hardship, danger, injury and deprivation. Many of the passages are narrated in the brutally strong language of men at war and contain the black humour of those in constant peril. This story is testimony to what a trained and determined man can endure and achieve.
