Subtitle: Five True Stories from World War II
Author: J. Pepper Bryars
- "Undaunted" is a collection of five short stories of heroes from World War II who served in the U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Air Corps, the U.S. Marines, and the U.S. Merchant Marines.
- These stories are from both theaters – European and Pacific – and they span the length of the war.
- First we meet a young artillery officer who devises a plan to keep the Japanese at bay while besieged in the Philippines. Then we walk beside a soldier who loses his leg after the infamous Bataan Death March and stay with him in a POW camp in Japan. Next we leap from a burning B-24 Liberator with a bombardier in the skies over Nazi-occupied France, then sail with a Merchant Seaman on the S.S. Paul Hamilton liberty ship through the U-boat infested waters of the Mediterranean, and finally stand with an awestruck Marine in the middle of downtown Nagasaki after the atomic bomb blast.
- The cover should communicate the essence of being "undaunted," which is being courageously resolute especially in the face of danger or difficulty.
- I’m open to all ideas; illustrations or pictures. Black and White or Color. One image or many.
- Images (illustrations or pictures) must be historically accurate and of U.S. troops, equipment or other images of things in the World War II-era.
- Images don't have to be of the events in the story, as explained above, but shouldn't contradict them, either. For instance, if you use an image of a plane, it'd probably be best to use a B-24 since that's in the story.
- eBook cover only. No spine or back cover.
- Readers must know the book is about World War II when they're scrolling through Amazon and seeing only small thumbnails of covers, so 1) the subtitle should be clearly visible and 2) the art should be clearly visible and instantly convey World War II.
