About this title:

Synopsis: This eyewitness account of the Golden Years of Radio, World War II social history, and women's progress toward equality are woven into one woman's humorous and poignant autobiography of her family struggles and her attempts to fulfill her creative dreams.This book is richly illustrated with 50 historical photographs and sketches.

About the Author: Alice Herlihy Green (1913-1982) A former press agent, World War II Marine Corps wife, and mother of two children, studied creative writing with Thornton Wilder at the University of Chicago. started her career as a press agent and always aspired to write the story of her own humorous, adventurous life, but life itself got in the way. This book, which her son Peter (just barely) survived to finish, is her triumph.

In his career as an architect, Peter has witnessed enough close calls, suspicious acts and outright skullduggery to lure him into writing mysteries. He also loves to delve in history. Find out what secrets he finds hidden in the past, buried underground or decided out of the public eye by the obscure figures in charge of cities' critical infrastructure. A writer, architect and city planner reared in a family of journalists, Peter found his father's 400 World War II letters, his humorous war stories, his mother's writings and his family's often hilarious doings too good a tale to keep to himself, so he launched a second career as a writer. After years of architectural work and proposal writing for his design firms, he went back to Washington University to study creative. His father's amusing antics and serious achievements of his father's military adventure, Ben's War with the United States Marines, and his first Patrick MacKenna Mystery, Crimes of Design, were republished in 2014 by Greenskills Press. A new Patrick MacKenna Mystery, Fatal Designs, is forthcoming in early 2015. Peter earned a Certificate in Creative Writing and Bachelor of Architecture degree from Washington University, St. Louis, and a B.A. from Yale University. He served as Vice President, Programs, for St. Louis Writers Guild from 2009-2014 and still serves on its Board of Directors. His is a member of Sisters in Crime, St. Louis Publishers Association and Missouri Writers Guild. His design organizations include the American Institute of Architects, American Planning Association, American Institute of Certified Planners and the Society of American Military Engineers, where his is a past St. Louis Post President and Fellow. He lives in St. Louis with his wife, Connie, and has two very young married daughters and three small grandchildren. An illustrated, Thurberesque story on the life and times of the last pet they owned can be found on this author website.

Book Description Greenskills Associates LLC, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. "When Ben went off to war.It was obvious I had to go to work. But with all these new duties and two small children under my wing, what could I do? There was a labor shortage. Sure. But was it so bad that some desperate employer would pay handsomely for two hours of a frazzled female's time after a hard day? Shall we say, fifty dollars a week?" PRAISE FOR PETER GREEN'S FIRST WORLD WAR II BIOGRAPHY "Dad's War With The United States Marines is very highly recommended to all general readers and a welcome addition to the growing library of military memoirs and biographies." -James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review World War II was a tipping point for social change in America. With their men at war, nineteen million women joined the work force. Radio, the first instantaneous mass medium, provided daytime serial drama, entertainment and news, including pronouncements of world leaders and terrifying war reports, as President Roosevelt used the new medium to rally the nation to arms and win the war. Alice Green's lost and recently found eyewitness accounts of her childhood, her own war, the Golden Years of Radio and the postwar housing shortage are told from the light-hearted viewpoint of a shy, youngest child, who learns she can make even the stormy and outrageous characters in her own family laugh. With a little help from her son, who (just barely) lived to finish iescaped this madhouse to help tell it, her story stands for unsung American women in war and survives as Alice's triumph.
