A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF
ALL PRE-ORDERS have been shipped! Thank you to all who bought a copy of my latest. I am extremely happy with the news my publisher just passed along- the book has already gone into a second printing (a surprise, to be sure). So, if you are wanting a First Edition, I would suggest not waiting too long to order. I don't want to sound as though I'm "pushing" my book, but I know that some people collect First Editions- and we still have a supply of them here. I am very pleased with the reception so far for The Frozen Hours. It's a very different story than I have told before. The struggle by American and United Nations troops against an enormous Chinese juggernaut is a part of our history that very few Americans (and our allies) are aware, and even if you've heard of The Chosin Reservoir, you may not realize just how that story came to be — nor how and why it concluded the way it did. It is one thing to speak of heroism in combat, and I have done that often. But the challenge for the men in this story is fighting not only their enemies, but the climate that swallows them — sub zero temperatures that become as deadly as the weapons of war. Throughout the writing of this book, I have come to know some of the veterans of this campaign, and those who still survive continue to carry the scars. The best way for me to offer these men the highest respects for their accomplishment is simply to tell their story, with as much historical accuracy as I can. If this book is a surprise, if you have little idea just what this particular history is about, then I hope you will find it to be a revelation. If you happen to be one of the veterans of this campaign (and I've met a number of you), I hope you find this to be an appropriate telling, that I've shown appropriate respect to both sides, and portrayed the characters and the events accurately. At the very least, as with all my books, I hope you find this to be a good story.
We are in the process of updating this website, which also means updating the "Order" procedure. I am happy to personalize an autographed book any way you wish, but for some reason, Paypal has eliminated the "Special Instructions" box, where you used to be able to give me those details. So, if you wish any sort of personalization in your book, please send me an email. I'm happy to sign any way you like! . I apologize for the extra step.
The itinerary of my book signing tour is now posted - see the Appearances page. I have very little to say about the choice of cities (that comes from my publisher), but if they're sending me to someplace close to you, I hope you'll come out and say hello!
Please know that, as always I read EVERY email I receive, and try to respond to as many as time allows. And, if you do receive a response, it is really coming from me, and not a "staff". I'm amazed how often people assume my emails are actually written by some nameless assistant. I promise, it's me.
Wishing you all a warm spring,
Jeff Shaara – May 22, 2017
