Every one of the men and women who fought in this terrible war was a hero. Thanks, Amanda, for all your work preparing your grandfather's story. Angela's review When I was a child my uncle Louis would sit with me and tell me some of what happened when he was overseas fighting in WWII. I always remembered that. I have great admiration for his granddaughter who has put together all his notes and pictures in a book.
I must say I couldn't put the book down as it brought back memories of some of the things he told me as a child. Also, I did not realize how much my uncle relied on God and must say it was most comforting to me! I recommend this book to WWII buffs and also to those who had family members serve their country. It is an excellent read! God Bless! One person found this helpful. All students learning about WWII should read. See all 9 customer reviews. Write a customer review.
