Rules of the Game

Adrian Cabraal viewed himself as a good family man, and in many ways he was. But there was that other side of him, the one that lived life in the fast lane with its big risks, big money, and heavy hitters. Now Adrian has changed, and so have his values. He wants out, but he’s waited too long.

Betrayed to Federal Agents, he’s forced to decide between becoming a government informer and jeopardizing his family – or risking a thirty-year prison term. After choosing the road less traveled, he enters the dark netherworld of a maximum security Federal Penitentiary where he quickly discovers that living between written laws and unwritten codes means walking a fine and dangerous line. On one hand there’s mob boss Carmine Ruffino, the friend of an old friend who’s supposed to look after Adrian in exchange for his silence.

Tanks in Hell: A Marine Corps Tank Company on Tarawa

In May 1943, a self-described “really young, green, ignorant lieutenant” assumed command of a new US Marine Corps company. His even younger enlisted Marines were learning to use an untested weapon, the M4A2 “Sherman” medium tank. His sole combat veteran was the company bugler, who had salvaged his dress cap and battered horn from a sinking aircraft carrier. Just six months later, the company would be thrown into one of the ghastliest battles of World War II.

On November 20, 1943 the 2nd Marine Division launched the first amphibious assault of the Pacific War, directly into the teeth of powerful Japanese defenses on Tarawa. In that blood-soaked invasion, a single company of Sherman tanks, of which only two survived, played a pivotal role in turning the tide from looming disaster to legendary victory.
