Jack Woodville London is an internationally acclaimed author, World War II historian and trial-attorney in Austin, Texas. He is a graduate of the University of Texas Law School and a former captain in the US Army Quartermaster Corps. Jack’s foundation began when he was elected managing editor of the University of Texas International Law Journal in 1970. Since then he has authored a long list of technical articles and papers on various legal topics, and has spoken at numerous legal programs throughout the United States as well as internationally. In 2003, Jack put aside legal writing to enroll in the prestigious writing school of St. Céré, France where he graduated from among other esteemed writers.
London has spent much of his life exploring a deep interest in World War II and its effects on the home front—particularly small towns. His love for writing and history united to produce his French Letters series of novels which have been internationally praised for their meticulous historical research and ability to capture the language, attitudes, and moral culture of their setting in prose described by reviewers as ‘beautiful, but not pretentious.’
Jack’s passion for writing resonates in all of his literary works, earning them the national acclaim they have received. Most recently, Jack’s French Letters series received honorable mention at the 2011 London Book Festival and The Military Writers Society of America awarded him the prestigious honor of 2011-2012 Author of the Year for Engaged in War, the second installment in the trilogy.
