Running with the Enemy by Lloyd Lofthouse
A US Marine is framed for a crime he didn’t commit. He has a choice to make, save the woman he loves, or prove his innocence. He can’t have both.
“Obviously drawn from the author’s first-hand experiences as a Marine serving in Vietnam … a rough but occasionally heartfelt war story … is quite good and has a lot to say about the nature of the conflict.”
— Judge’s comment from 21st Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I came home from Vietnam in 1966 with a serious case of PTSD. In 1982, I decided to face my demons and started writing about what happened over there. That was not easy. A few years later, a professor out of UCLA's writing extension program suggested I turn that story into fiction, and let the main character tell his story, not mine.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
While Running with the Enemy and the characters in the story are fiction and do not represent any one person, what happens to the characters in this story happened to me or someone else I knew in the Marine Corps battalion we were assigned to.
