I’m pretty excited! Soldier Boy: the World War II Letters of Donald G. Reimer, is ready to read.
Here’s an excerpt from the cover:
“When l found a box of letters in my grandparents’ attic, I had very little knowledge of the part my father played in World War II. The letters, nearly a thousand written between him and his parents and sister back home on the farm in northern Illinois, juxtapose the difficulties of farming in war time with those of a young man far away from home for the first time, fighting in a bloody war.
“The letters tell a story of a young, naive boy as he grew into a soldier and a man.”
I was able to include quite a few photographs. My dad had a camera and sporadically, film for it, which he would mail home to my grandparents for developing. Amazingly, the photos were preserved in quite good shape (much better than my slides from the ‘70s and ‘80s).
