St. Louis County Library Virtual Author Event with Robert Child Feb. 8th at 7P

February 8th at 7P for Back History Month I hope you'll check out my  virtual author event with the St. Louis County Library on my new WWII book, Immortal Valor.  WATCH ON FACE BOOK

Recent Review of Immortal Valor:

"This book and its inspiring stories merits reading by soldiers, and all Americans, because so many of us still conceive of the world wars as “white” wars, fought and won by white men, an image and impression that standard books and movies still convey. African Americans have fought in every war that the Colonies and the country have waged, and a significant way to impress this fact on all ranks, and all Americans, is for them to read such a book." 
ARMY Magazine Feb 2022 issue. by John Morrow Jr. Dr. Morrow the Franklin and Saye Professor of History at the University of Georgia, specializes in the history of the world wars. In 2019, he was awarded the prestigious Pritzker Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing. Full Review
