9781939371621: Redemption (The Reluctant Warriors Series)

In his follow-up book to Reluctant Warriors, author Jon Stafford traces the impact of World War II on regular American men and women swept up by events thousands of miles away from home, and ponders how the continent that gave birth to Renaissance Humanism could descend into murderous chaos. It’s a story about soldiers who went to the other side of the world to fight for their country and the women who remained home to fend for themselves and their families with few resources and no one to turn to for support. The war left no lives unchanged. After the battles had been won and the fallen buried, the war continued to reverberate for decades in the lives of the men and women who fought and survived, lost the people most precious to them, became disillusioned, and found a way to go on. From Guadalcanal to the island fortress of Formosa, and from Tulsa to Sacramento, these stories show men and women finding redemption.

About the Author:

Jon Stafford was born in Michigan, the third of four children, and grew up outside of Chicago, attending college close to home. He ventured south to Alabama for his master's degree in Civil War history and worked toward his PhD at the University of South Carolina. Jon now lives in Columbia, South Carolina, and, after retiring from a thirty-year career teaching history to high schoolers, now spends his time as a residential building contractor, rehabbing houses. When not writing, Jon can be found spending time with his two daughters and grandchild, reading history tomes, and watching classic movies. Nostalgic for a time now gone, Jon is always rooting for the good guy: The good guys always win!
