First off, I must admit why I love this book. Walter Hawes was my uncle and the book's contributor, Wilma Hawes Connely, is my mother. She is 83 years old now with some recent health problems. September 2, 2012, I had to call an ambulance for my mother after she passed out. She told the medics, "I can't get sick. I have to help Doug Eaton write a book about my brother's World War II letters!" So this book has been a priceless labor of love.

Letters from Walter would make a great gift for someone who likes World War II history, and even for someone who thinks they don't. I say this because there is a lot of history in these sweet letters my young uncle wrote to his favorite aunt and uncle. In a letter dated Sunday, August 12, 1945, Uncle Walter tells about hearing that the War was over. "Sure a great day!" he said. Isn't it a shame that people don't write letters these days?

The net proceeds from the sale of this book will be contributed to the Oklahoma Honor Flights to assist Oklahoma military veterans the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. (at no expense to them) in order to visit the memorials in recognition of their service and sacrifice. [...]

After recieving "Letters from Walter", I sat down and started reading the book. I didn't stop until I had finished reading the entire book. It is written in a way that it keeps your attension and has a mixture of world war II and personal experiences of a
soldier 's letters to and from his aunt and uncle while he was overseas. I would recommend this book to all ages. I give it a five star rating.

I am a history buff and love reading about World War II and the brave veterans who fought for us during the war. This book was interesting due to the fact that the reader can actually read the letters the young soldier wrote home and can get a real sense of his frustrations, fears and excitement while he served in Europe and Northern Africa. I think anyone with an interest in World War II and related history would enjoy this book, especially fellow veterans who may have experienced similar emotions during their service.
