Overview

Nothing can stop true love, not even World War Two! Elmer Odell and Virginia Schill were high school teenagers from opposite "sides of the tracks" when the history of the Second World War began to be written. As Elmer and his P-51 Mustang fighter flew missions over the battlefields of Europe, he wrote home to his wife, Virginia, a ground-breaking woman newspaper reporter. Their hundreds of letters, excerpted here, bring you harrowing tales of World War II aerial combat, entwined with glimpses of what it was like on the home front. This heart-warming memoir and love story takes you back in time and gives you an intimate peek at the lives of what has been called "The Greatest Generation."
