There are many worthy books written about letters sent home during wartime. They are normally either a random collection or one person's letters sent to a wife, sweetheart, or parents. This collection is unique in that it is an assemblage of wartime letters written by numerous people, (servicemen, family and friends) all addressed to a single person. The letters to Jo Anne trickled in at first. Their tone was as light hearted and carefree as the lives they led before the war. As time wore on, the volume increased. Most were upbeat. Some were down right funny. Others turned dark and melancholy. After the letters, read interviews with Jo Anne and 3 of the letter writers, more than 60 years later. In addition, a brief historical narrative was added to put the war years into prospective.
