About this title:

Synopsis: A GI's letters to his family during World War II offer an inside view of military life, the recruits' fears, their commitment to their country, and their hopes for the future

From Booklist: Gr. 8^-12. A collection of letters home from U.S. Army private Keith Winston, this book speaks eloquently and directly to the hardships of life as a soldier. The editors provide introductory remarks and a few explanatory notes but wisely let the letters speak for themselves. Winston's homesickness and longing for his wife and two young sons are painfully obvious in the chronologically arranged letters, which follow the writer from his induction to his return home. Equally moving is Winston's reaction to the horrors of war, not just to the battlefield where he served as a medic, but also to the decimation of once beautiful cities and to the poverty and starvation he witnessed. The notes are not always adequate (for example, the editors mention the segregated African American troops but not the segregated Japanese American ones), and the photos, which seem at first to lend a nice touch, are actually unrelated to Keith Winston's personal story. As a whole, however, this is an excellent addition to primary source materials on World War II, presenting a moving, accurate picture of the emotional impact of the war. A list of further readings is appended. Debbie Carton
