WINNER of the 2013 SILVER Award for 'BEST HISTORICAL FICTION' awarded by the MILITARY WRITERS SOCIETY OF AMERICA (MWSA).
This is the second book of the 'Pass in Review' Trilogy - a saga of the Nolan family spanning the 20th Century.
HONOR follows on the heels of Pass in Review - DUTY, hailed by General John Galvin, former NATO commander-in-chief and others as authentic historical military fiction in the mold of ONCE AN EAGLE and THE WINDS OF WAR.
Book 1 - DUTY was the winner of the MILITARY WRITER'S SOCIETY OF AMERICA 2012 Bronze Award for Best Historical Fiction.
This second book covers the WW II years as the son of DUTY's protagonist takes center stage militarily as a fighter pilot in Europe. However, family and friends introduced in the first book continue on in the second, many as central as they were in the original.
To follow: Pass in Review - COUNTRY about Vietnam... the last in the trilogy featuring the third generation Nolans and their service in the latter years of the American century.
