In 2014 the world will celebrate the one-hundred year anniversary of World War I. In 2007 I was given my grandfather's war journal and a box containing several of my grandparent's documents.
The journal entries were so detailed and compelling that it motivated me to write a historical war novel that is unlike any other. "The Great Promise" does not address the history behind WWI nor does it dwell on military tactics or strategies. My intention was to transcend the reader beyond the historical depiction of the war by transporting them to the war's reality through the personal experiences of one man who survived while millions of others perished.
The book tells the story of a promise that was made between three chums serving in the Royal Field Artillery. Journal entries support the story-line and documents the hell of war.
I'm self-publishing the book and it is in its last phase before publishing. For those reviewers interested in historical war novels this is a must read. I would be happy supply a PDF file of my manuscript to those interested.
