“The Final Mission: A Boy, a Pilot and a World at War” Named Finalist in Magazine Contest
Elizabeth Hoban, coordinator of Health Services at County College of Morris (CCM) and author, recently was named one of two finalists in the Declaration of Independents Audiobook Contest for her book “The Final Mission: A Boy, a Pilot and a World at War.”
The contest was sponsored by The Writer magazine to provide a winner with the opportunity to have his or her book fully produced as an audiobook. More than 3,000 entries were submitted.
“While I did not come up with the winning prize, it is an honor to have the book I authored with my father recognized by The Writer magazine,” said Hoban, who is a Newton resident.
Hoban’s book, which was co-authored with her father Col. Henry Supchak, details his courageous actions as a World War II pilot to save an Austrian village and a shepherd boy’s decades-long search to thank him.
Published by Westholme Publishing, the book has been described by Col. Christopher Gruber, commander of the Western Regional Medical Command, as a “remarkable story of sacrifice, honor and life-long redemption that provides a rare glimpse into the true drama of human experience.”
