Winter of the World

Real Stories of World War Two

Winter of the World inspires real life stories of World War Two as Pan Macmillan and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity announce partnership.

Inspired by Winter of the World, the second novel in Ken’s epic ‘the Century trilogy’, Pan Macmillan published in September 2013 an ebook containing some of the incredibly moving stories of World War Two to raise money for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity - the national charity of the British Army since 1944.

Pan Macmillan created a story bank on Ken’s Facebook page and invited his fans to upload their own, real-life stories of World War Two.  Readers from across the world, from the USA to Europe, Asia to Africa, were inspired to post personal voices of a generation and its descendants. A selection of their stories was used to compile an ebook which includes a contribution from Ken himself, about his own family’s experience of the war.

The partnership between Pan Macmillan and The Soldiers’ Charity will offer generations, young and old, a glimpse into the deep effects of the war on each and every family at this terrible moment in history.  All profits from the sale of this ebook will go directly to The Soldiers’ Charity. Ken has also given an exclusive interview in the latest issue of the charity’s supporters magazine ‘FrontLine’ which is published now.
