Johann Fuchs, a veteran of the U.S. Army, who found a career in truck driving to raise and support his family, has completed his new book “The Last Days Before Peace”: a gripping and powerful narrative that explores the life of one of many who served in the Second World War and aided in the Allied victory, but received little honor and distinction.

Fuchs shares, “The story follows a young college who is about to graduate when World War II breaks out, and he joins the Navy. He is assigned to the USS Cassin as she is being rebuilt after Pearl Harbor. The story follows Lieutenant Pembrooke and the USS Cassin as they journey through the war. The story is how the small warships (destroyers) affected the war but didn’t get all the glory. Lieutenant Pembrooke is wounded near the end of the war but is able to return home to his wife and daughter.”

Published by Page Publishing, Johann Fuchs’s fascinating novel explores the lives of those who served with pride but are often forgotten about in the history books. Poignant and character-driven, Fuchs’s thrilling narrative will stay with readers long after its conclusion.

Readers who wish to experience this captivating work can purchase “The Last Days Before Peace” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
