)-- Novel reveals subject known only by a small community of soldiers, their families, and military historians
Borders Books and Music at Northlake Mall will host a book signing for local author Bob Rogers from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sunday, June 6, 2010, the 65th anniversary of D-Day in Europe during World War II. Rogers’ new historical novel, Will and Dena: Love and Life in World War II was published last fall.
Set in North Carolina’s Central Piedmont in the midst of war, the novel is a story of young lovers struggling to overcome parental mate selection. Lena Horne-look-alike Dena is determined to give her heart to Will, the reluctant soldier. The novel breaks new ground when Will serves under American Army Major General Edward M. Almond during the “Little Battle of the Bulge” in Italy. Author Bob Rogers reveals why his men regarded him as their second enemy after the Germans.
After the war, noted military historians Dale E. Wilson, Ph.D. and Ulysses Lee declared General Almond’s strategies and polices to be “a recipe for disaster.”
Since its release, Will and Dena has garnered high acclaim from readers and reviewers.
