Author’s book follows a teenager’s coming-of-age during World War II

Readers are in for an entertaining ride through history and life as author Harold Flagg takes them on a GI Odyssey. Made available through Xlibris, this World War II Memoir/Novella gives them a glimpse of life during war and the youth who struggled to survive it.

GI Odyssey is a highly enjoyable tour de force about a teenager’s coming-of-age during World War II. Harry “Harold Flagg” Bandera writes his story in third person and uses mental time travel to depict life on an Ohio farm, sightseeing in Paris, skiing in Switzerland, meeting English cousins by the dozens, earning a university degree, and surviving $90,000 worth of cancer treatments—all on Uncle Sam’s tab. The author invites readers to come, crawl between the sheets, and read how it all went down.

GI Odyssey will be featured at the 2011 London Book Fair in London, England, on April 11-13, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.

About the Author
Like Ernest Hemingway and Mark Twain, Harold Flagg has scotched media reports of his death during a news-gathering assignment gone askew. His World War II credentials include an ETO medal with a bronze campaign star—plus a French Ministry of Defense citation for being among Allied combatants in France during World War II. Flagg used the GI Bill to study at Bowling Green State University, Ohio, and Université Laval, Québec, Canada. He once met Queen Elizabeth II aboard her royal yacht. When not traveling or wishing to hobnob with royalty, Flagg lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
