Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
"Hold Back the Sun" relates the adventures and romances of two US Asiatic Fleet Lieutenants during the fall of the Philippines and Dutch East Indies early in the Pacific War. The book is filled with air and naval surface combat, paratroop operations, a trans-Pacific flight in a posh Pan Am flying boat, fast-paced wartime romance, and the scorched earth actions of the Dutch oil officials.
Warren Bell's newest novel, "Hold Back the Sun," was released on October 25, 2013. As the Kindle version of the book was released without fanfare in advance of the official book launch, "Hold Back the Sun" quickly climbed to the Top Ten of the Amazon Best Seller List for Historical Fiction: Asia. "Hold Back the Sun" covers many aspects of the early Pacific War that have been seldom explored in popular fiction. Anyone who enjoys WWII adventure stories should like "Hold Back the Sun." World War II buffs should especially enjoy the accurate portrayals of the opening action of the Pacific War. Readers of W.E.B Griffin, Jack Higgins, Frederick Forsythe and Clive Cussler are the target audience for this book.
Warren's debut novel, "Fall Eagle One," was published as an e-book on Amazon Kindle and CreateSpace as a paperback. "Fall Eagle One" was well-received by readers and has hovered in the upper one percent of Kindle sales for most of 2013. Before writing fiction, Warren served 30 years as an officer in the U.S. Navy, followed by ten years as City Engineer for Alexandria, Virginia. In his capacity as an environmental official he authored many published papers on stormwater quality. Warren is the author of several sections of the "Virginia Storm Water Manual."
Warren was born in 1936 in Arkansas, and he was educated at the University of Arkansas and The George Washington University. Warren Bell is now living his lifetime dream of becoming a novelist. "I really enjoy creative writing. I love digging into the details of the times about which I write. I strive to paint word pictures for my reader that will make them feel that 'they are there.'"
