    For eight months in 1970, Captain John Martin served his country in the U.S. Army in South Vietnam. On a typical day, his job was to find and kill Vietnamese. The next day he might try to save the same Vietnamese with medicine or with hammers and nails. At night, inside the wire, the enemy had a different face—drunks, drug addicts, assassins and spies.Yet the “little war” John battled for decades at home was even more dangerous, destructive and difficult to understand than the one he'd left behind in Vietnam.Even today, countless lives are lost to wars that many veterans fight alone—little wars that begin when tours of duty end. This is the candid story of John’s two wars and the people who helped him survive.

  • The Dams of Western San Diego County

    John Martin

    eBook (Arcadia Publishing, Oct. 30, 2017)
    The unreliability of the San Diego River compelled the Franciscan fathers to construct the area's first dam in 1813 to conserve drinking and irrigation water for the Mission San Diego de Alcalá. This water-driven circumstance continued and expanded in the ensuing American era. Lacking a reliable water source at the turn of the 20th century, San Diego County was destined to experience modest growth. The region's semiarid conditions, cyclical droughts, and existing river systems determined that the only effective way to maintain a ready water supply was to conserve runoff and river floodwaters behind dam-created reservoirs. Between 1888 and 1934, private and municipal interests constructed a series of massive structures that made San Diego County the dam-building center of the world. The county featured some of America's first multiple arch dams and earliest hydraulic fill dams. Into the mid-1940s, dammed reservoirs remained the principle water source for county consumers and made the municipal expansion of the city of San Diego possible.
