Combining copious and meticulous research with original letters, interviews, personal recollections and anecdotes, Tim Bazzett tells Bill Porteous's story with compassion, insight and humor. His narrative conveys a contagious and obvious delight in discovering how we are all connected. Here is a homespun history lesson about the nearly forgotten polio plague years and our fathers' and grandfathers' war, presented in a way that manages to bridge the gap between generations and even allows us to laugh a little as we learn of such serious matters. Perhaps in the end, however, Love, War & Polio is a simple and universal tale - one of faith, hope, and the healing power of love.

Review:

"An intriguing aspect of WWII not previously explored ... Bazzett writes with masterful insight, talent and heart ... Fascinating!" -- Jack Suberman, Ph.D., Retired Dean of the College of Humanities at Florida Atlantic University, and former Professor of English at North Carolina State, 1952-67

"Because of men like Bill Porteous we enjoy liberty and freedom ... Great job!" -- Bob Dole, former U.S. Senator from Kansas and author of the national bestseller, One Soldier's Story

"Love, War & Polio is vintage Bazzett, who has his own voice ... likeable and interesting, and true-to-life sounding." -- Samuel Hynes, Professor Emeritus of Literature at Princeton University and author of Flights of Passage

"Unique account of a soldier's battle with an unexpected enemy - polio ... Reveals how challenging recovery from polio could be." -- Daniel J. Wilson, Ph.D., Professor of History at Muhlenberg College and author of Living with Polio: The Epidemic and Its Survivors

A slice of history, filled with authentic details ... Captures perfectly the ideals of the 1940s ... Remarkable!" -- Peg Kehret, author of the award-winning memoir, Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio
