Book Description: An Untold Story of World War II. A collection of World War II memorabilia that includes:
A private and secret journal kept by a sailor aboard the USS Yorktown
Letters sent home to his wife and child
A child’s memories of war
Radio news reports of the day
Ship’s Plan of the Day
This collection was written in 1944 and 1945. Terse journal entries disclosing casualties and battles engaged in by “The Fighting Lady” are in striking contrast to the thoughtful and affectionate letters sent home to a beloved family. It is a living lesson in history that reads like a novel. It is a true story that personalizes the sacrifices our military families make to preserves and protect our freedom. Published in August 2015. Available at Amazon & Barnes & Noble.
Location (city/state/country): Traverse City, Michigan
