The Heroes of '45, a new book by Ron Mielech, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

The Heroes of '45 by Ron Mielech is an enchanting tale of historical fiction; however, this could very easily be a story told about life in a small Kentucky town during the war. The action takes place in 1945, following thirteen-year-old Richard Townsend. During the war, Richard's father, C.F., continues his legal practice on the home front, while others of Richard's family and friends are serving their country at war. Richard is pleased that his father is safe but is disappointed that he has not served in the military.

Over the summer, Richard falls in love with Mona Hollis. Richard also develops an appreciation for the heroes on the home front, like his father, as he watches his father excel in court.
