I’m running a free promo on my short novel “Soldier On.”
I think it’s a fairly decent story about World War II, from the German perspective at the end of the war.
I’ll put the book description below, but I’d really appreciate it if you guys downloaded it for free, even if you’re not interested in it. Why? Because downloading it for free will boost its rankings and help it get more and more views/attention.
And if you have a blog or Twitter account or facebook page that you can share this on, I’d really appreciate it if you shared it there, as well. Doing so would help me immensely, obviously, as social media is one of the best ways to help me get my name out there.
As World War II enters its final stretch, the last elements of the German Army struggle to survive and end the war with honor.
The German soldiers know the war is lost, but have no idea how many days (or weeks) remain before capitulation. The weak and unlucky are gone. Now, only the strong remain, a ragged band of men determined to maintain their prestige and respect. They are the sons of indomitable veterans from the World War I — men filled with too much pride to quit or surrender.
But food resupply is a problem. Ammo, too. And each day, with its increasingly absurd set of orders, begins to test the men in ways they could have never imagined. These days are tough for the men, and tougher for the leaders.
Hemmed in by Nazi SS units, waiting to arrest or shoot retreating troops on one side, and hordes of well-supplied American troops advancing mercilessly on the other, the men pray they must only endure the freezing weather of the last days. And that their supplies won’t run out. And that they won’t lose the honor and dignity they’ve spent years creating.
“Soldier On” is a short novel. [Approximately 72 pages long.]
