On Two Fronts
Lance Taubold, author
On Two Fronts fearlessly brings the reader deep into the thoughts, emotions and experiences that are captured often just hours after occurring. Two friends share their conversations, e-mails and experiences with one another, and the reader, capturing the true essence, fears and camaraderie of a combat deployment in its entirety. On Two Fronts, Sgt. Adam Fenner and Lance Taubold are thrown into the emotional reality of coping with the upcoming deployment. Lance was living life to the fullest, a singer and entertainer, enjoying the Vegas lifestyle and the company of good friends. Then, his closest friend, Adam Fenner, a former Marine, now serving with the Nevada National Guard, was informed that he would be deploying for the third time to Afghanistan. In a story told from both fronts: Taubold's, as he copes with Fenner's deployment from notification until his (hopeful) return home, and Fenner's as he faces the physical and emotional challenges of deployment and those he leaves behind.
