Marcus Brotherton is a professional author and journalist that is best known for his high-profile collaborations with military personnel, public figures, inspirational leaders, and humanitarians.

Many of his works that promote noble living, empathy, and heroics have become New York Times bestselling works. His most notable fiction work is “The Long March Home which he published in 2023.

The work was coauthored with historical, inspirational, and thriller fiction author Tosca Lee. He has penned works that have been made into major HBO pictures such as the” Band of Brothers” miniseries.

He has also published works with the like of Gary Sinise the Oscar-nominated author turned advocate, Lieutenant Buck Compton the prosecutor for the murder trial of Robert Kenndy, and Martha Hawkins the restaurateur among many others.
His works have also been optioned for movies and appeared in the likes of ECPA, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists.

Marcus has also appeared in “A Company of Heroes,” a World War II documentary that aired internationally and nationally on PBS.

Brotherton was born in Canada to a journalist mother and a father that was a minister. As such, he grew up being encouraged to think big thoughts about the world that he lived in.

During his childhood, he was exposed to all manner of ideas and books and came to love storytelling. However, it was in high school that he began thinking that he would become an author in his adult years and began penning short stories for fun.
He would then go to the Portland-based Multnomah University where he earned his bachelor’s degree. While he was in college, he wrote many short stories, articles, and essays.

Later on, he graduated with high honors as he earned his master’s from Biola University. His first job after graduate school was at a church where he was employed as a youth director which he enjoyed immensely.
At 31 years, he decided to change direction as he became a newspaper journalist before he gradually transitioned into the authorship of books.

It was in books that he finally found the blank canvas he needed to take his readers on a journey of discovery and immersion.

Moreover, he needed something on the side to bolster his finances as he now had a mortgage to pay and a child to support which could not be covered by his newspaper job.

Marcus Brotherton was lucky that he had kept the contacts of one of his professors who was employed in the book industry.

When he contacted the professor, he agreed to send him a few books to edit as a moonlighting gig. One thing led to another and soon he would become a writer and editor which he still does full-time to this day.
The idea for what would be his most popular work “The Long March Home” was born in 2008. He had then been writing several nonfiction works with Lieutenant Buck Compton of “Call of Duty” who loved talking about the events of World War II.
He used to talk a lot about the many challenges he faced fighting in the war but often felt fortunate that he did not fight in the Pacific theater.

His sentiments stayed with Marcus for years until in 2013 he decided to interview several veterans that had fought in the Pacific. He also found some inspiration from reading a book about soldiers that were ordered to take the Bataan Death March.
Once he read that, he just knew that he would need to shine a light on the work of the veterans and immerse his readers in their experiences.

“The Long March Home” by Marcus Brotherton tells the story of Jimmy Profield. The man had joined the army so that he could forget Claire his high school sweetheart and get out of Mobile Alabama with Billy and Hank his two best friends.
Life in the Philippines could not have been any better, until they hear news from Manilla in December 1941. Apparently, the Japanese have done the unthinkable by bombing the United States military base at Pearl Harbor.
The teenage friends now find themselves in a war as Luzon is under attack by Japanese warplanes. This is the start of the battle for supremacy over the Pacific, which would ultimately result in a last stand on Bataan.
It would also result in one of the most massive surrenders of American troops ever. Soon after, the Japanese visited one of the worst atrocities in war now popularly known as the Bataan Death March.

Since they have no hope of getting rescued, the three friends vow to work together to ensure they all get back home. However, this is only the beginning of their nearly four-year ordeal of survival.
It makes for a gripping coming-of-age narrative of unrelenting hope, sacrifice, and friendship.

Marcus Brotherton’s novel “We Who Are Alive and Remain” is a brand new collection of short stories inspired by Band of Brothers. These are some of the men who participated and served in the many adventures of the legendary Easy Company.
They are men that had undergone intense military training for nearly two years. They would then be flown into France and over the beaches of Normandy on D-Day and then into Operation Market Garden.

They would then fight their way through Germany, France, and Belgium, liberating concentration camps, beating overwhelming odds and finally drinking a victory toast atop Hiotler’s last refuge in the Alps in 1945.
This work reveals for the first time stories of courage, sacrifice, and war from the experiences of some of the most legendary military units in history.

It tells the stories of twenty men who recount the victories and horrors the blood and tears they shed, the bonds forged and the brothers lost.

“Feast for Thieves” by Marcus Brotherton is the story of Sergeant Rowdy Slater. During the Second World War, he had been Dog Company’s most incorrigible paratrooper.

After the end of the war, he vows to change his life soon after robbing a bank with Crazy Ake a black-hearted man.

The lawman suspects that Rowdy’s confession is not sincere and orders him to serve as the town minister for at least a year or else he will send him to jail.

Rowdy decides that his contribution will be as a preacher at the Cut Eye, Texas-based community church, which is in the middle of emptiness and nowhere.

Initially, the job seemed easy enough, especially since Rowdy is taking over from a female missionary who had been charged with keeping the church going while men fought the war.
Things get interesting when Ake comes up with an insane plan they could use to make some quick money and Rowdy has to make a deadly choice.
