Letters from My Brother
Letters From My Brother is a story of a boy's life, his love of flying, his girlfriends and those he left behind. A proud member of the Eighth Air Force my brother co-piloted a B-17 in WWII and recorded his arduous flight training in dozens of letters sent home. Training for these young men took more than a year and was a huge job. And then a large percentage of them were killed on their first mission. On the home front, mothers worked for the first time in defense plants and children learned the dreadfulness of war. This story is one of real life drama, romance, adventure, mystery, loyalty and patriotism from 1941 to 1946.
