Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

This book was originally written specifically for the sons and daughters of Americans who were killed or missing in World War II. It was intended to be a guide to help them learn more about their fathers, more about World War II, and to enable them to apply for medals and benefits to which they are entitled. It has since been expanded and edited to include help and information for all next of kin of American World War II servicemen.

Touchstones evolved from my personal search for information about my father, Sydney Worthington Bennett, a native of Bakersfield, California, who was killed in Italy, 19 April 1945. This search for my father began in earnest when I was in my late forties and after my mother died. It seems only then I was free to pursue my interest in my father's life, his military service, and the circumstances surrounding his death.
