Synopsis: Dear Captain, et al. interposes a hardboiled war memoir and a tender love story. A faithful re-creation of World War II infantry combat from original source records; as powerful as a raging storm and as sensitive as a heartache. Beautifully and passionately written with a touch of irony. Scores of interesting characters. Transports readers to the war and its era with verve, yearning, humor, and strength.
About the Author: Allan Wilford Howerton was a communications sergeant in a rifle company during World War II and studied at Drexel Institute of Technology in the Army Specialized Training Program (ASTP). After the war he earned bachelors and masters degrees at the University of Denver. He was a career civil servant with the U.S. Civil Service Commission. After retirement he was involved in local politics and was a talk-show host and general manager of a local cable television channel. He and his wife, Joan, a registered nurse, live in Alexandria, Virginia. He is currently working on a novel, "Alger Hiss was Innocent on our ISLAND IN WASHINGTON PARK," a sequel to "Dear Captain, et al." about post-war readjustment in the Truman era, and a book about his early life in western Kentucky.
