This will be the cover to a new book about the Iraq War titled "American Warfighter."
The attached "Cover Mock Up" PDF will give you a basic idea of what I was thinking, but you are free to be creative!
Take a look at the following books for inspiration:

The attached "Cover Text" document should provide all of the necessary text, along with guidance for what should be on the paperback and hardcover versions.
Note 1: The typewriter "J" should be on the bottom of the spine, as it's the publisher's logo.
Note 2: The text on the cover should be easily visible and readable as a thumbnail image on Amazon. Small type will not work.
Note 3: For the title font, try Trajan Pro, and for the subtitle, try Caslon Pro ... but I'm open to other fonts, as well (as noted on the covers I linked to, above).
Note 4: I have permission from the owner (U.S. Army) to use the image on the book.
