His son Pat Cooper, 62, from Priestwood, said that he was very proud that his father's war stories were used as inspiration for the book.
Great-grandfather Frederick, who died aged 87 in 2007, served as a sergeant in the Kings Royal Rifle Corps in World War II and was awarded a military medal for bravery. He fought in Italy, which is where Ms Tracey drew inspiration.
Monica Tracey will be signing copies of her new book at Waterstones in Bracknell town centre on Saturday from noon-3pm.
