War, Literature & The Arts Blog is a forum for publishing anything that has to do with the subject of war – Essays, photographs, art, poetry.  Currently, it’s being administered by James A. Moad II (also known as Jay), who served as a professor of War Literature at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs until the fall of 2010. He is also a Veteran and former C-130 Pilot with over 100 combat missions. He has published both fiction and nonfiction, has recently finished a novel and is pursuing publication.  He spent 2010-2011 in Germany, where wrote and traveled with his wife and two children. He also volunteers with the Warrior Writers program (based in Philadelphia), working with Vets to use art and writing as a means to cope with the trauma of war.  He returned to the U.S. in Sep 2011 and will go back to commercial flying for Delta Airlines.

  1. Hi James,
    So glad author friend Siobhan Fallon shared your link on FB. I was reading over your list of war literature and I wanted to mention a couple of war related books you might not have heard of.

    The Final Salute – my novel about fighter pilots during the Desert Shield/Desert Storm era

    Home of the Brave: Somewhere in the Sand, Press 53, edited by Jeffry Hess (fiction anthology which features an excerpt from my latest novel)

    Home of the Brave: Stories in Uniform, Press 53, edited by Jeffrey Hess

    Red, White, and True, forthcoming Sprint 2014 from University of Nebraska Press ( my essay “Remembering Forgotten Fliers, Their Survivors” will be included in this collection edited by Tracy Crow

    There are so many more titles I could add to the list. Many of my author friends at Military Writers Society of America are producing quality war related literature every year.

    Take care and so glad to make the connection. BTW – My husband just retired from American Airlines this past March.

    I would like to send a copy of one of my stories, but cannot do so from this site. I served as a medic in Vietnam and my story, Going Home, was published in the May 2014 edition of Today Magazine. Let me know.
