A landing beach in France, exploding under fire and littered with wounded men. Grim surgeries performed in a captured pillbox, in an orchard, inside a Calvados distillery barn. A crumpled glider falling out of a hedgerow.
And Géraldine Dupré, a young French woman who was not pretty, not exactly, but pleasant enough to look at.
This is the war of Will Hastings, a green Army doctor, five thousand miles away from Virginia Sullivan, his former girlfriend who had not written in months, and from Tierra, the little town that seemed to have forgotten him. This was his war in Normandy in 1944.

About the Author
Jack studied the craft of fiction at the Academy of Fiction, St. Céré, France and at Oxford University. He was the first Author of the Year of the Military Writers Society of America. He is the author of a number of published articles on the craft of writing and on early 20th Century history. His craft book, A Novel Approach, a short and light-hearted work on the conventions of writing, is designed to help writers who are setting out on the path to write their first book. A Novel Approach won the E-Lit Gold Medal for non-fiction in 2015.
Jack's work in progress is Shades of the Deep Blue Sea, a mystery-adventure novel about two sailors and a girl on a Pacific island that, instead of a tropical paradise, turns out to be a land of prisoner of war camps, cannibals who believe that God is singing to them from a military field radio, and an inconvenient Komodo dragon.
Jack lives in Austin, Texas. Visit him at jwlbooks.com or contact him at email@example.com.
