Fearful Odds is first and foremost an unvarnished story of combat, a vivid and graphically told series of events that lead to severe combat trauma. This is the true story of a young officer, groomed for command who in the heat of battle, faces the contradiction of an inept chain of command and the guilt, anger and pain that follows.
The story shifts to the career of an entrepreneur whose venture capital business brings great wealth, prestige and security. There is a darker side, however, which leads to unimaginable loss and an obsessive and anguished return to the field of battle to confront the demons of war.
In the end, Fearful Odds is a story of hope and redemption—how one individual and his family coped with loss to achieve a new normal for the next generation.
