JENKS, OK, UNITED STATES, March 7, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reader Views announces WWII Aviation Artwork by Joe Glyda, as one of the overall grand prize winners in non-fiction, taking home the bronze award, an award honored with a cash prize and special marketing promotions.

“WWII Aviation Artwork: And the Stories Behind These Beautiful Birds” explores the history and legacy of WWII aircraft, combining meticulous research, digital artistry, and personal narratives. Through the preface and the detailed explorations of 34 airplanes, Glyda conveys a profound respect and fascination for this pivotal era in history. The book reveals hidden aspects of aviation history and personal stories from the people who were part of this time, making it not only a collection for enthusiasts but a touching journey into the past. It’s presented as an essential heirloom and a recommended addition to any collection, emphasizing its value in preserving and sharing the rich history of WWII aviation with future generations.

Susan Violante, Managing Editor of Reader Views says, WWII Aviation Artwork: And the Stories Behind These Beautiful Birds by Joe Glyda is the best example of what passion and purpose can accomplish. Joe Glyda manifests in this book his love for photography and digital art, with his love for airplanes. He produced a beautiful collection of WWII airplane illustrations and compiled archives of pictures of the planes produced during the mid-1930s to mid-1940s which fought during WWII. The result of his work is a jewel for any WWII and/or airplane enthusiast and collector, but that is not just what this book is.”

Glyda notes, “My book inspiration came to me after realizing how many different aircraft were built in such a short amount of time between 1939 and 1945. With all the push to forget history, I wanted a younger generation to learn about ingenuity, purpose and dedication. This was the perfect fit to incorporate stories of the planes and the people that were a part of that aviation history.”
