Local author Ken Dauth will discuss his book "Beyond the Battlefield: A Message From the Fallen" and talk about military veterans on Saturday, April 14, from 2-4 p.m. at the Golden Word Book Centre at 1575 W. 89A Suite D, Sedona

"Beyond the Battlefield: A Message from the Fallen" is about the personal cost of war and the message from those who have paid the ultimate price. Starting in the Confusion of a pre-dawn encounter with enemy troops, four men are killed by friendly fire; the most devastating and haunting killed in action their loved ones can experience. The book posts the questions: What if the War Dead had something to tell us? What if after making the ultimate sacrifice their mission was incomplete? What if their sense of duty was much broader than the last order given?

These are not obvious realizations that come to family members visited by men and women who were killed in action but through repeated visitations these war dead finally get the message through.

Cindy Johnson is one of the family members grappling with not only seeing her husband Roy after he was killed by friendly fire on that Mid-East battlefield but also holding him. After witnessing Roy a second time, in front of two military officers, she begins to contact other families of soldiers killed in action who have had similar experiences feeling that there is more going on than hauntings.

Sergeant Gabriel Gordon, who is recuperating from war wounds in an American Military hospital, is coming to terms with the knowledge that his men Roy Johnson and Joe Williams, who were killed in action, are standing by his bed every night. He sees other deceased soldiers standing by the beds of every wounded man in the ward and begins looking into the reason why these men are not at rest.

What Cindy Johnson, Gabriel Gordon and others are about to find out is beyond their control and the message is being delivered all over the world.

Ken, who is a Vietnam-era U.S. Navy veteran currently resides in the Village of Oak Creek. He grew up on the east coast of the US in Manhattan, Leonia NJ and after his Naval service moved to Fredericksburg, Va. He spent over 14 years with tax software company Intuit, retiring as a programmer in December of 2008. Since then he has been living his dream of writing and now celebrating the publication of his first novel "Beyond the Battlefield: A Message From the Fallen" by All Things That Matter Press.

Ken has written other novels that will be released soon.
