Harold Flagg's WWII Memoir "GI Odyssey"

Author Harold Flagg's of Fort Lauderdale FL, a traveller and sometimes tourism consultant, recently has had his second book published through Xlibris, a self publishing divison of Randon House Inc.

A military auto-biography, GI Odyssey: World War II Memoir/Novella is a highly enjoyable tour de force about a teenager’s coming-of-age during World War II.

Harry “Harold Flagg” Bandera writes his story in third person and uses mental time travel to depict life on an Ohio farm, sightseeing in Paris, skiing in Switzerland, meeting English cousins by the dozens, earning a university degree, and surviving $90,000 worth of cancer treatments—all on Uncle Sam’s tab.

Come, crawl between the sheets, and read how it all went down.

Here are exceprts from the book.

Though Flagg has all but recovered from his recent bout with cancer, last spring, in observance of the Silver Anniversary of Conch Republic Independence Day Celebration, he joined many for a National Endowment of the Arts bus ride from Fort Lauderdale to Key West for a lunch, lecture and tour of the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum.

Flagg's writing style is similar that of Hemingway.

When communicating with Flagg, by email, seldom does he not speak of and reminisce about Paris. A city and country that he 'longs for' ... and soon hopes to revisit.

Currently available through Xlibris, within a few weeks Harold Flagg's GI Odyssey: World War II Memoir/Novella may also be purchased from, Barnes&Noble and

His first book "Affordable LuxuriesCaviar Living on a Tuna Diet" is available at, World Retail Store, and MSN Shopping.
