First Lieutenant Clay Noia, USMC, “upon completing two years as a First Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, Clay Noia returned to Colgate to obtain his Master’s Degree.  He has taught English in college preparatory schools in California and Ohio.” First Lieutenant Clay Noia is the author of A Season of War.

One reader of A Season of War remarked, “When I added A Season of War to my summer reading list, I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew it was fiction set during World War II. I also knew that that wasn't the usual choice for my list. Yet as I started to read, I realized that I couldn't put this book down. It appealed to me in many ways.  My family had always told stories of life during the war. But reading about Jackie's friends and family made me feel like I actually experienced being a teen during the 1940's. I loved the way historical fact was woven into the fictional story.

 

As Jackie was hanging around with his friends and dealing with his moral predicament, I was completely engrossed with every chapter to see what they were going to do next and how Jackie would resolve his dilemma. I loved the twists and turns to Jackie's resolution.

 

I can truly say that A Season of War was a wonderful read! Clay Noia's descriptions of events and characters made me feel like I was there too! I read this book from cover to cover in three sittings because I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen to Jackie next.”

The MOAA said of A Season of War, “Narrated by the 14-year-old Jacky Barnes, this novel details life on the Home Front during the Second World War and the events that engulf Jacky, his family, and his friends. These events mirror the changes that were a rite of passage for America during seven bloody years of world war. The novel covers the major events that encompassed the war and is rich in details and fascinating facts as it tells an exciting story of arson, fear, friendship, and loyalty.”
