Is God on America's 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 that 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.
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?
