A very personal story of a WWII POW survivor - by his daughter - who retraced his steps, and shared her journey as well as his. Plus, an inspiring story because this POW survivor went on to live a full, loving, forgiving life when he returned from the war. Well worth it for anyone interested in personal WWII stories - and inspirational stories of survival.

This memoir is both educational and inspirational. Over the last month, I began reading several non-fictional accounts of WWII. I started with Laura Hillenbrand's "Unbroken", followed by Erik Larson's "In the Garden of Beasts", and now Candie Blankman's "Forged by War". All three have given me a better understanding of the hardships and tragedies faced in WWII, but "Forged by War" delved into the effects of war on the next generation. This book has a unique, personal perspective rarely seen in historical writing. It was inspiring to read how one POW's suffering created the foundation for a happy and healthy family.

Forged By War
This is an excellent book, and even more meaningful since I visited this home when I taught Bible school in their church many years ago.
I gave the book to my husband for Christmas and he is enjoying it very much.

This book is so very relevant to all children and grandchildren of those who fought in WWII. So many things that "trickle down" from our parents and grandparents into our own lives. This book is insightful and special, informative and honoring. I purchased copies for my dad and uncle who were also "forged by war". But also I will hand a copy to my daughters who have never known war, but should at least know this personal account and loving tribute. Beautifully done!
