One doesn't often get a glimpse into someone else's life story so this book is a real treat. And it makes one wonder if one's own marriage could withstand a 30 month separation without growing so far apart that no relationship is possible. Happily, this story has a happy ending or, rather, I should say a happy continuing! This book is also valuable to help us understand the magnitude of service that so many men and women offered during World War II. It certainly makes me wish I had asked my own father more questions. Since that is not possible, I am glad to have the opportunity to read this story.

Dearest Marguerite, February 6, 2008 Marie (Longmont, Colorado) - See all my reviews What an amazing story these letters reveal. This is history at a very personal level-- a story of love and hope amid the hardships of World War II. We see the difficult times the soldiers endured--from 130o temperatures to insects, rats, mud, lack of supplies, and so much more. But we also see their ingenuity in making the best of the situations they were in. They believed in their cause, and the people back home believed in them. During these trying times, they anxiously awaited every letter from home--their only contact with normal life, and the families they left behind. These touching letters give us a glimpse into the thoughts and hopes of these two newly-weds, but also so much about what they and thousands of other soldiers endured during their long separation.
