Summary, etc.:
A wife tells a 101st Airborne paratrooper's story of his WWII experiences in Normandy, Holland, and Bastogne. Together, the Snell's creative explanation and conversation through back and forth comparisons, provides an opportunity for the reader to have an emotional response to the effect of war from a paratrooper, veteran, a child, woman and nurse's point of view. War affects us all because we see through the eyes of people in far away, long ago, compelling events that shape our lives.--adapted from back cover.
