Nine men in the generation immediately preceding mine served in WW II. As a young boy I often heard several stories about the 'war years'. This well-constructed book provides others with a similar unique view, offered via personal letters, of what life was like for families of that time. There are no battle stories, just descriptions of the hum-drum training of draftees and their desires to hear from their families at home, and somehow stay involved. The book evokes a humble pride in the war effort, not just from those serving, but also the families at home. This generation has been called America's greatest, and in this book you see why. Composed almost entirely of reproduced letters, the brief but pertinent perspectives of the editor, Jill Markham, tie the story together.
