Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Scottsdale,AZ - Nov 09, 2017 - “Near Misses” is the enthralling and historically correct memoir of Nelson Edward Jacobs (Jake), a dive bomber in World War II, who survives the war but experiences many setbacks in life. “Near Misses” is the creation of published authors, Kerry Jacobs and Edward Lee Jacobs, a husband and wife team who both grew up with fathers who were World War II veterans.
How does a man with a quiet demeanor, a sense of humor, loyalty to a fault, and a modest opinion of himself, such as Nelson Edward Jacobs (Jake), survive being a dive bomber during the horrific World War in the Pacific? How does a man who had experienced so much emotional pain throughout life remain so good? This book tells Jake’s story, beginning with unexpectedly joining the US Armed Forces at age nineteen to get away from home. Chronologically, Jake encountered being a China Marine, a dive bomb pilot, an army officer, and a consultant for Boeing all while trying to manage some harsh personal setbacks.
This book shares with the reader Jake’s contentment and strength in the military as well as Jake’s inability to find the right woman. It gives the inside stories of a man who, especially at the end of life, should have been celebrated and embraced not victimized through exploitation.
Readers can purchase “Near Misses” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Kobo or Barnes and Noble.
