Lieutenant Colonel Larkin Spivey, USMC (ret.) is “a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War and a retired Marine Corps officer. He commanded infantry and reconnaissance units in combat, and was trained in parachute, submarine, and special forces operations. He was with the blockade force during the Cuban Missile Crisis and served Presidents Johnson and Nixon in the White House. As a faculty member at The Citadel, Larkin taught U.S. military history, a subject of life long personal and professional interest.” Lieutenant Colonel Larkin Spivey is the author of Miracles of the American Revolution: Divine Intervention and the Birth of the Republic and God in the Trenches.


According to the book description of Miracles of the American Revolution: Divine Intervention and the Birth of the Republic, “Miracles of the American Revolution presents a concise and factual history of America's founding, with major sections devoted to: The Ideas, The Men, The Battles, and The Miracles.  The book is not lengthy but is comprehensive in its coverage of the key Founding Fathers and important military campaigns of the war. Suitable for adult and young readers alike, it is an easy-to-read overview of the American Revolution for anyone.”


According to the book description of God in the Trenches, “Spivey's book reveals the most critical moments in America's military history and shows the apparently miraculous occurrences that changed the course of these events, preserving America and the freedom for which America stands. Is God on our side? Is it possible a providential hand intervened at critical junctures during America's wars? Is freedom important to the Almighty? Larkin Spivey, a decorated Marine Corps officer and respected military professor, believes so.


In God In The Trenches, Spivey shows when the nation's survival seemed uncertain, even doubtful, fate seemed to turn America's way, giving way to mysterious-if not miraculous-events. These events altered the course of history, leading to victory for the American military and enduring freedom for America's citizens.


Spivey's gripping accounts, backed up by credible historical evidence, will show you how:  An unopened note changed the course of the Revolutionary War;  A phantom attack caused George Washington to win a decisive battle; The "unluckiest" incident in wartime history led to freedom for millions; Random events in the Pacific gave a small American carrier fleet victory; and,  A U-2 spy plane and the death of a pilot saved the world from nuclear holocaust.


Whether these events were miracles, or just plain mysteries, Spivey leaves no doubt that the history of the United States was swayed many times by a hidden hand. Will the hand of providence help America once again?”
