Company News

 

We have just sold Lawrence Kaplan's historical biography, Time in the Trenches, to Potomac Books of University of Nebraska Press! 

 

Time in the Trenches chronicles the experience of a young schoolgirl named Tatiana L. Dubinskaya who ran away from home in 1916 to serve on the Eastern Front as a soldier in the Russian Army during World War I. Years after returning from war, she became the first female soldier from WWI to be published in her country when in 1930 her book recounting her personal experiences as a soldier, In the Trenches, was published in Moscow. Editor Lawrence M. Kaplan's biography pays homage to this remarkable woman. A military historian with more than 25 years' experience with the U.S. Army and Department of Defense, respectively,  he is currently the historian for U.S. Army Cyber Command.  He has written and edited many books on American history. 

 

Langtons International welcomes our new authors

Joseph Hanania has contributed nearly two hundred by-lined articles to the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times, for which he "discovered" Aaron Grunhut, the subject of his forthcoming book. Hanania's historical biography describes how one brave Jew during the Holocaust, Aaron Grunhut, a Hungarian goose liver merchant in Bratislava, successfully rescued 1,350 of his people singlehandedly.
