Johnnie Howell, a veteran, devoted family man, and jack-of-all-trades, has completed his new book “World War II as I Remember It and Other Short Stories”: a straightforward and fascinating record of Howell’s memories from the front lines and an entertaining collection of short stories.
Author Howell writes, “The pivotal year of my life was 1943, and it began on March 10 when I was given a long white envelope with the return address: Draft Board Number Seven, Eighth & Broadway, Louisville, Kentucky. It was a draft notice that I should appear seven days from the date of the letter to be inducted into the armed forces of the United States at 8:00 a.m. in the location shown above.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Johnnie Howell’s potent selections of stories features his World War II experiences in Europe and his thrilling short tales of historical fiction.
Johnnie Howell served in the Second World War with the Sixty First Engineer Combat Battalion in the five major battles of Europe: Normandy, Northern France, Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge), Rhineland, and Central Europe. He was a part of the flank guards on the two principal drives across France: the Filaise Gap pocket with the First Army and the drive to Nancy and Metz, France, with Patton’s Third Army. In “World War II as I Remember It and Other Short Stories,” Johnnie shares his personal stories of soldier life on the Western Front and his own riveting short stories.
