Description

An "ordinary" soldier in the Second World War communicating his most personal thoughts, feelings, hopes and fears during the five years of separation from his loved ones, Oliver Spalding's letters overflow with love and tenderness for the wife to whom he is writing. With wry humor and down-to-earth humanity, he shares moments with his wife such as daily chores and the heart-stopping moments of an enemy plane before it is shot down. This is a delightful collection, full of vivid images and emotions, which charmed radio listeners several years ago and is sure to move the reader today.show more
