I’m giving away for free my short novel “Soldier On.”
The book is 72 pages long and I think it’s a pretty good story about WWII. And if you’ve ever wondered about how bad it sucks to be in the infantry, you’ll definitely enjoy it.
The book is free all day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
And if you don’t have a Kindle but would like to read it anyway, you can go to this link and download a free Kindle reader for your computer, laptop, ipad, phone, or other device. (Honestly, the Kindle reading device for your computer is a really sweet program. You might be surprised how much you use it.)
Here’s the book description:
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.]

P.S. I really appreciate everyone’s support of my books. Sold Out, the Marine Sniper/CIA thriller about Nick Woods, has gone as high as No. 64 in its genre. And Little Man, and the Dixon County War, a Western thriller that moves super fast, has gone as high as No. 57 in its genre.
