We’ve been working on a new book that is really exciting. It is coming soon, before the holiday season, in time for Christmas orders, Something To Write Home About (I will add a link to this title as soon as the book is in print). It is filled with letters written home by a World War I soldier. This book is commemorating the centennial anniversary of the Great War!
There are over one-hundred letters from this soldier to his parents, which he is entirely devoted to, some to friends, and his girl. A full shot photo of each letter accompanies a transcription of each one for those that may have trouble reading what is written.
Live the day-to-day life of a World War I soldier through his letters. He writes about Pershing coming to view the troops, attending a Carnival in Paris in which Pershing was in attendance as well. One letter he writes to his dear brother telling him to steer clear of the Spanish flu, then a couple of weeks later, he writes about comments made by a friend in reference to his brother who just passed away from the Spanish flu. Page, after page, this book is filled with letters dating from May 1918 through June of 1919 when he went home.
Historians, ancestry researchers, and people who enjoy old letters, will find many names dropped in his letters, locations described, Camps he’s stationed at detailed right down to the food served.
We are pushing to have it in book form by the end of October, so mark your Calendar to get one of the first copies printed of Something To Write Home About!
