Learn History from the Account of a Veteran

2017 Havana Book Fair to display book of AP newsman who fought in WWII

New York, NY – WEBWIRE

What better way is there to learn about the past than through the eyes of someone who lives to chronicle them? Jordan is our link to some of the most turbulent times in American history.

It is always fun to learn history from the perspectives of journalists or soldiers. Being eyewitness to not a few events, they have always been closer to where the action is. Journalists come face to face with the newsmakers while soldiers expose themselves to the orders (and whims) of decision-makers who decide where to deploy them for battle.
Kentucky native Paul R. Jordan happened to be both a World War II veteran and a seasoned Associated Press newsman. After seeing action in Germany, he worked in news media and federal government. He then turned to writing upon his retirement from government service.
An extensive biography, “Journey From Beaver Creek” details Jordan’s childhood in the Bluegrass State, his experiences in wartime Germany, his venture into journalism, his exposure to politics, his take on the most pressing issues of his time, plus other facets of his life that concerned – and shaped – him as the child of the Appalachians and of the Great Depression and an eyewitness to World War II and the socio-political landscape that followed after the war.
“Journey From Beaver Creek” is not just an account of one man but of the diverse histories of America as well.  Jordan’s book connects generations in a span of 258 pages. This makes as a wonderful supplemental reading in American History class.
