Pearl Harbor and More by Robert Kingsley
On December 7th 1941, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes carried out a devastating surprise attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and changed the face of World War II.
This wide-ranging collection of eight stories by a diverse group of authors, living all in different parts of the world and who write wartime fiction, commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Pearl Harbor. Few people's lives were unaffected in some way by that fateful day and these stories reflect this.
Some of them are set at Pearl Harbor itself, in other parts of the United States and in Singapore. Other stories take place in Europe: occupied France, Germany and Northern Ireland. They explore the experiences of U.S. servicemen and women, a German Jew, Japanese Americans, a French countess, an Ulster Home Guard, and many others.
The authors invite you to step into December 1941 with them
About The Author...
Robert A. Kingsley is a Dutch- Canadian author who currently works and lives in Europe.
He works out of the magical city of Amsterdam as an independent ICT consultant. Robert has a son and a daughter, both talented professionals in their own right, and has recently become grandfather to a wonderful grandson.

Robert's other books: In September 2014, after several years of intensive research, he has published "The Odyssey", the first volume of "The Java Gold". This multi-part historical fiction story will take the reader all over the world and through half a century of recent history.
In this series Robert has combined his life-long interest in aviation and military history (especially World War 2)with local, on-site knowledge he has gathered during his travels all over the world as an international ICT consultant.
The first two volumes of "The Java Gold" are largely set in the former Dutch East Indies. Not many books have been written about the turbulent post war years in that area and especially Indonesia. The Japanese invasion, the post-war struggle for independence and the general unrest in South East Asia serve as a fascinating background to the story.
The idea for the book was born during a "steak and beer" dinner in a California micro-brewery. Robert had just come across a number of highly intriguing facts and events that had happened in Indonesia during and after the 2nd world war.
'I could write a thriller around them' he said and one of his closest friends dared him to do so.
And he did...
