John Sheldon, who is from Pittsburgh, Pa., had not intended to join the Army; he certainly did not intend to become a public affairs specialist, and he did not intend to follow in his grandfathers footsteps. But that's exactly what he has done-in his own way. ....Sheldon's grandfather was Walter, or Walt, Sheldon. ....."He is best known for his nonfiction work-it started with detective novels to pay the bills," John said. "(His writings were) first hand, non-fiction accounts and interviews of the occupation of Japan, and history of Vietnam, the history of the Korea war, and other biographical and U.S. military history books. (His best known work) is the 'The Honorable Conquerors' and it is also the most referenced book about the occupation of Japan." Other non-fiction work includes "Tigers in the Rice" 1969, "Hell or High Water" 1968, and "Tour of Duty" 1959.
