Summary

Summary

The letters, excerpted here--from an American soldier who died at Normandy--are filled with candid, innocent, and at times wrenching expressions of love for family, the anguish and agony of war, and unshakable faith in a country's noble cause.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Teaming up with author Golway (So Others Might Live), former corporate economist Carter presents his reflections on the 150 letters that his father wrote home to his mother, his brother and himself before he was killed in combat, along with generous excerpts from the letters themselves. Along the way, he uncovers military, family and emotional history in equal measures and presents all with penetration. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
