Letters from a Soldier, 1941-1945
Letters From a Soldier is the colorful journey of a farm boy turned soldier during World War II. The letters are original documents that have survived from the early 1940s. Many photographs taken in combat during the war in Europe augment these letters - photographs never-seen-before, taken by the actual soldiers who fought in General Patton's Third Army.
The soldier survived all the horrors of combat, only to come home to peaceful western Michigan, and contract cancer. Dying when his son was only six, we discover with the son the father he never knew. We learn of his faith in God, and love of family. It was with that intense spirituality that the soldier was able to endure the hardship of war - and what ultimately won World War II.
