Historian and Author, L. Douglas Keeney, Publishes First Title of WWll Trilogy
CAMPBELL, Calif. – April 17, 2012 – Today FastPencil announced the launch of “The War Against the Luftwaffe 1943-1944, The Untold Story” by military historian, researcher and author L. Douglas Keeney. The book, the first in the Lost Histories of WWII Trilogy, shares recently declassified information that presents the history of World War II and recognizes D-Day as a milestone air war victory over Germany. The novel carries the highly selective FastPencil PREMIERE imprint reserved for very successful, best-selling authors and experts.
“The War Against the Luftwaffe” dives deep into the history of World War II and tackles the long-standing debate of how D-Day was not only a land invasion but an air war victory. D-Day was a key battle leading to the defeat of the Third Reich; and in this book, readers will learn about a risky transformation in commanders and a simple change in strategy.
“World War II and D-Day are two of the world’s most significant events and due to recently declassified information, a new light has been shed on our history,” said author L. Douglas Keeney. “I’m thrilled to share this information with readers and launch ‘The War Against the Luftwaffe,’ the first book of a trilogy that follows one of my life’s passions.”
The second book in the trilogy, “The Antisubmarine Command: The War Against The Nazi U-Boats 1942-1944” will be available through FastPencil PREMIERE this summer.
L. Douglas Keeney is co-founder of The Military Channel where he hosts the series “On Target.” He has written 11 books on military history including “15 Minutes” and has received high praise from the Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, Booklist and Library Journal. He has also appeared on The Discovery Channel, CBS and the Learning Channel.
“‘The War Against the Luftwaffe’ is a captivating story about the people, strategy and technology responsible for the successes and near disasters during that time,” said Steve Wilson, CEO and co-founder of FastPencil. “His book takes the history of WWII into a new direction we have not seen yet. We are ecstatic to have Doug come on board with FastPencil Premiere to publish his trilogy, as he is a fan of our speed to press and seamless publishing process.”
