Federal Way author’s new memoir depicts realities of war through soldier’s inspiring journey
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. — Author Paul Boyce announces the nationwide release of his captivating, new biographical book, “The Call.”
In “The Call,” Boyce records the experiences of his uncle, a sailor who served on the USS Langley during the famous Pacific Island Hopping campaign of World War II. The Langley, a lightweight carrier, was in the thick of the war from January 1944 through May 1945. Follow along as Boyce skillfully weaves the life of a 17-year-old farm boy into the battle-hardened realities of naval warfare. Readers will see, firsthand, the human side of war and be captivated by the courage and resolve of the young people who rose to its challenge. They will be given a glimpse into the strategy and tactics behind the Pacific campaign, the attacks and counterattacks, the successes and disappointments, the joy, the despair, the peril and, in the end, the victory.
As with his other works, Boyce has taken a wholesome approach to his storytelling in “The Call” and has produced a narrative that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages, from teen to adult.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
