Kenneth Frederick Ruhl, a former member in the military, residential sales consultant, and division supervisor who grew up during the years of the Great Depression, has completed his new book “A.K.A. Fred”: a highly original story that covers his childhood when the Great Depression and World War II have affected everyone—including his family—and his memorable years with his friends.

Author Ruhl narrates some of the facts in the timeline of his life: “Now, it’s 1942 and the war news was not good. It seemed as if all the older guys we knew were joining the army or the navy or the marines. Lots of people were going to work in bomber plants, shipyards, and any defense-related industry. At home, we helped with paper drives (I thought they would never end), and the older teenagers worked on scrap-iron drives. People were encouraged to buy defense bonds to help finance the war effort. Children could buy defense stamps which were placed in a special book. When the book was filled, it could be converted to a bond. Some schools had these stamps for sale, and they were also available at post offices and banks. Movie stars and other famous people had programs and shows to promote war bond sales.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Kenneth Frederick Ruhl’s relatable book will surely resonate to those generations belonging to the 1930s and 1940s, especially those who have experienced those years. This is a personal account full of details that touch every reader to empathize with people’s plight during these pressing times in the past.

Readers who wish to experience this enlightening work can purchase “A.K.A. Fred” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo or Barnes and Noble.
