Eavesdrop on conversations between two brothers
"LETTERS lost then found" features letters exchanged between 19-year-old Freddie, a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Forces who flew over 120 combat missions, and his 30-year-old brother Willie, Circulation Manager of the Michigan-based Saginaw News. The letters reveal the drama of battle, the daily life that goes on for both brothers, and the vital importance of family connections. Includes a “Day in History” section on each page that provides a glimpse of what was happening in World War II at the time each letter was written.
Does the world really need another book about the “greatest generation?” When it’s this one, “Yes, absolutely.”
Two reasons why: 1) Letters Lost Then Found – more than any Hollywood film, TV show or book this Baby Boomer has ever seen – provides an accurate and realistic picture of what life was really like back in the day when America’s citizens did something more than slap a yellow ribbon-shaped magnet on the back of the car to “Support our Troops.” 2) These wartime letters were written by two brothers who clearly loved each other. Yes, I’m a sucker for a good love story. I couldn’t put this Bromance down. Thank you, Amy L. Johnson, for salvaging this half-century-old conversation and using your considerable graphic design talent to make it engaging and relevant.
