EDGE OF VALOR NOW IN PRINT! The newest Todd Ingram novel!
The fifth novel in the Todd Ingram Series. It’s August 15, 1945; a cease fire is declared in the Pacific and Commander Todd Ingram, skipper of the destroyer USS Maxwel (DD 525) expects to relax and take his ship and crew home on operation Magic Carpet. Instead, he’s ordered to Manila to accompany sixteen Japanese senior military and civilian diplomats to work with General MacArthur’s staff on the release of POWs; the de-armament of the Imperial Japanese Military; and the Tokyo Bay surrender ceremony. From there, it gets worse, as Ingram finds himself pulled into a hideous maelstrom of events as he sprints from Okinawa to the Philippines, to a war-ravaged Japan, to the Toro Airfield on Soviet-conquered Sakhalin Island and a secret so terrible that all three sides do their best to suppress it.

"I shall return" is General Douglas MacArthur's promise to the Filipinos. It will take 165,000 troops and 700 ships in the bloody battle of Leyte Gulf to do it.
Among them is the destroyer USS Matthew and her skipper, Commander Mike Donovan, a veteran haunted by earlier savage battles. What Donovan doesn't know is that Vice Admiral Takao Kurita of Japan has laid an ingenious trap as the Matthew heads for the treacherous waters of Leyte Gulf. But Donovan faces something even deadlier than Kurita's battleships: Explosives secretly slipped on board American ships by saboteurs are set to detonate at any time. Now the Matthew's survival hinges on the ability of Donovan and his men to dismantle a bomb in the midst of the panic and the chaos of history's greatest naval battle. Read more»
