Paul J. Giannone

Born into a blue-collar immigrant family in upstate New York, Paul Giannone found his calling in the chaos of the Vietnam War as an Army medic. His experiences transformed him from a conservative small-town boy to a man with a mission to make a difference for the victims of man-made and natural disasters around the world.

The author has found himself a participant in some of the most dramatic and horrific events of the past half century—America’s defeat in Vietnam and the subsequent “boat people” crisis; the fall of the Shah of Iran; the unspeakable acts committed by violent groups in sub-Saharan Africa, the tension along the Pakistan-Afghan border following 9-11, and the flood of refugees unleashed by the war in Syria.

A Life in Dark Places 800At its heart, A Life in Dark Places is an adventure story, its heroes the men and women who have risked their lives to minister to the vulnerable. Paul writes masterfully about what he has seen and experienced with a keen eye for detail and a leavening of humor.

A Life in Dark Places is more than a memoir of one man's journey and evolution. It is a wakeup call to America and its citizens.
