Atlanta World War II Round Table

The Atlanta World War II Round Table was organized in 1986 to hear and record the war experiences of World War II and to pass on to posterity the knowledge of World War II and the price – human and material – that was paid by our nation for the preservation of freedom in the United States and the world.

The uniqueness of the organization, which meets on the third Thursday of each month, September through June, is the diversity of its membership. There are retired Army Generals, Navy Captains, Air Force Pilots, Master Sergeants, Navy Chiefs, and most importantly, the Buck Privates, the Navy Seamen and Air Force enlisted men and women who were and are the backbone of all military branches. Each month, these individuals meet to share their personal stories. They are no longer separated by rank or seniority since all are “seniors”. They meet as friends and comrades with a common story to share and remember.

The next meeting is scheduled for April 20th. For more info, check out their website at http://www.atlantawwiiroundtable.org/profile.htm

from Jack Smith’s “The Blowing Winds of Spring”

There was an explosion that engulfed the whole plane and it disintegrated, sending pieces into the water out in front of where he sat…. He eased back in his chair and tried to relax, wiping his damp hands on his pants. They hurt from gripping the glasses so hard. The sky still held the smudges of exploded gunfire but there were no signs of the planes that had just caused all this. The spring winds had started to blow and tomorrow would be April 6th, the day all hell broke loose around Okinawa….

Autographed copies of Jack’s books are available – see “SHOP”.

Additionally, Jack is a frequent visitor at the Bookstore – and as written about by Rona Simmons, stop in and have a coffee with Jack Smith!


Acworth Bookstore just received a new shipment of military hats, flags and mugs. Whatever your favorite branch of the military, we have something for you!

Book Signing January 28 (1 – 5 pm) – Buck Buchanan

Carlton “Buck” Buchanan was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He graduated from Chattanooga High School. “First and Thirty” is Buck’s first published book.

“First and Thirty” follows the lives of Chattanooga’s City High football players and their friends as they undergo the trials and tribulations of being in high school during tumultuous years, while attempting to beat their arch-rivals Central High on the gridiron.

On a cold night in November 1970, the maroon-clad seniors of City High’s Dynamo football team took the field one last time, carrying the indelible lessons that Head Coach Bobby Davis had instilled in them. Would this be the game that would break the spell Central High had held over them?
