The Last Jump A Novel of World War II

by John E. Nevola

purple heart





propels her only son headlong into an unexpected adventure as revealed in The Last Jump. Fact and fiction intermix seamlessly as he endeavors to unravel a secret passionately guarded by four old soldiers who swore an oath never to reveal it. The Last Jump is a war story, a mystery, a love tale and a narrative of valor and honor about the gritty men and women who won World War II. The reader is transported back to a time when Americans stood shoulder to shoulder in defense of their nation. It was an imperfect America, with all its incredible virtues and vexing shortcomings, that struggled with racial and gender issues while fighting for its very survival. As our protagonist reaches out to these aging veterans to solve the puzzle, he uncovers truths he could never have imagined including the shocking conclusion.

Thanks for coming to this page. Of course I hope you will buy the book but in addition I'm asking for your help in promoting it. Why? Because proceeds are donated to assist the families of the fallen through the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund.

Here's how you can help. We all have extensive contacts in our address books and social media. It would be wonderful if you would forward, post or share this URL to your friends and family. Hopefully, we can create a "buzz" by making it “viral” and getting some exposure over the Internet.

The Last Jump is available through amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com . The Kindle version on amazon.com can be borrowed from KOLL for free for Amazon Prime members.
