James Howell is a retired sales executive now living in Georgetown, Texas. He served in the Army between the Korean and Vietnam wars when the Cold War was at it’s hottest. He has a fascination for military history and tries to stay true to facts while writing fiction. His first three books are about the race to build the first atomic bomb. The first and hopefully the last time a nuclear weapon has been used in combat. Thankfully, the war ended with the detonation of the bomb over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, thus saving millions of combatant and private lives. Operation Trickery is about the small battles and deception that helped win the war in Europe months ahead of the end of the war in the Pacific.
