NEWS: Local author Kevin Cowdall’s Paper Gods and Iron Men published on Kindle Store

Local author Kevin Cowdall’s new novel Paper Gods and Iron Men has been published on Amazon’s Kindle Store (available now). Set in the North Africa Campaign of World War II, the novella, Paper Gods and Iron Men, is a story of endurance and survival, of ordinary people in extraordinary situations.


Two British Army officers have come together at a temporary aerodrome to be flown out: Captain McBride is a career soldier and member of the Long Range Desert Group (a special force which operates behind enemy lines carrying out reconnaissance and sabotage missions). Captain Poole is an enlister, having worked as a surveyor in civilian life. 

When their plane is shot down the two are the only survivors and begin the long trek north across the desert…

This Kindle edition is published with the short story, Flanagan’s Mule, which shares the theme of personal determination and resolve, and which is set in a South-American mining community in the 1950s.

Kevin has received much praise for Paper Gods and Iron Men from Amazon reviewers:
“Great novella, keeps you engaged throughout, fully developed characters that you care about and so descriptive, you feel so involved in their story”. 
“Beautifully written, very atmospheric and engaging. Would recommend this for sure”. 

The book is now available from The Kindle Store on Amazon priced at £2.05 / $3.21 / €2.68 (inclusive of all appropriate taxes).
