THE INVENTOR’S WAR 1933-1947 THE DURABLE IDEAS AND INNOVATIONS OF WORLD WAR TWO
by Craig Suter
No one has ever looked at World War II like this.
World War II produced a large number of innovations so sophisticated that subsequent iterations hardly changed from the original. This includes products for the home, office, and health. Additionally, social changes from the war went on to become the framework of the present society.
RISING FROM THE SHADOW OF THE SUN, A STORY OF LOVE, SURVIVAL AND JOY
by Ronny Herman de Jong
Ronny Herman de Jong has released her second book! RISING FROM THE SHADOW OF THE SUN, A STORY OF LOVE, SURVIVAL AND JOY brings the horror and losses of World War II on Java off the battlefields and military POW camps and into the world of Ronny Herman, who is barely three years old in 1942 when the Japanese conquer Java and force her family into prison camps where they would suffer until 1945. Ronny’s father Fukko, a pilot with the Dutch Naval Air Force, escapes with his squardron hours before the Japanese submarienes encircle the island. Working under British command in Sri Lanka, Fokko’s story is chronicled along the same timeline as that of his wife and children; an interesting link.
RISING FROM THE SHADOW OF THE SUN, A STORY OF LOVE, SURVIVAL AND JOY details her journey from childhood deprivation in WWII Japanese concentration camps to peace and prosperity in the 21st century in the USA. Her historical memoir is available from Booklocker.com, Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble.com.

THE CAPTAIN OF ALL THESE MEN OF DEATH
by Alejandro Morales
When Robert Contreras attempts to enlist to fight in World War II, he discovders he has tuberculosis and is committed to a sanatorium. While there he meets a series of women who have a profound effect on his life: a mysterious French doctor, a captivating patient, and a sinister acquaintance from a Los Angeles barrio. Meanwhile, a hospital newsletter delivers articles describing the various ways in which tuberculosis patients have been treated throughout history. The author equates the barbaric practices to heinous modern-day medical experimentation and to susperstitious pagan rituals in California barrios.

THE INVENTOR’S WAR: 1933-1947; THE DURABLE IDEAS AND INNOVATIONS
OF WORLD WAR II
by Craig Suter
Craig Suter’s THE INVENTOR’S WAR: 1933-1947; THE DURABLE IDEAS AND INNOVATIONS OF WORLD WAR II outlines in some detail stories and little-known facts gleaned from more than four hundred and fifty bibliographic citations. The ballpoint pen, knobby farm tractor tires and Vitamin C have a common element- they were all influential in World War II. There are more than thre hundred everyday civilian products and innovations that came from this war still in use today. Want to know how statistically analysis cut the losses of Allied aircrew? It’s in there. Did you know Italy declared war on the United States partly because we proceeded to manufacture ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) without regard how it affected the Italian economy? Check out Chapter 5. Each of the twelve chapters highlights a different aspect of modern life: home, at work, transportation and recreation. This book was written for the teenage and beyond audience. It is not the typical “war” book. All the usual elements of the war genre have been abandoned in favor of an understanding of the long-range effects of the war on our present-day lives.

We have had two more book releases, INTERVIEW WITH GODS by i Cavalcanti and THE BLACKSMITH’S SON Son by Frank Stanford.
INTERVIEW WITH GODS is an intriguing read based on Brazilian author i Cavalcanti’s goals. He said, “I’m starting on a new challenge of sharing with everyone, through writing, some of my own visions. I strongly believe that through knowledge sharing we can create a society that is mentally and ecologically sustainable.”
Requested by readers of his first book, MY GARDEN TRIBUTE: A COLLECTION OF WORLD WAR II STORIES of World War II Stories, British author Frank Stanford brings us THE BLACKSMITH’S SON. This book is the true account of Frank’s experiences growing up in the 1940s as the son of a blacksmith, including being evacuated from his home as a child due to WW II.
As always, we truly appreciate your support of our authors!
