Format: Paperback
For anyone interested in World War II history, this is a must-read. So little has been written about the 57th Fighter Group, which had a huge role in pushing the Nazis out of North Africa and Sicily. This history, which the author calls "a true story of love and war, tragedy and triumph," is more interesting than most because the story was built around love letters written by his father to his mother. He also used diaries of others who served with his father and included photographs that add a lot to the history/story.

This book is a moving story full of rich history. It adds a face to so many bare bones dates and events during the war. It also illustrates the lost art of letter writing and communication. Thank you for compiling these letters and offering them to the world. Very good book, well worth the price.

"Warhawk: Letters From Out of the Blue: A True Story of Love and War" by D. G. "Rocky" Denton is a riveting historical perspective of life on the battlefield woven on the loom of romance during the years of the war that preceded the baby-boom generation. The author provided a rare look at the war as experienced by his parents through letters and journals that survived and were finally shared with him many generations later. Through this book, the author re-shares those experiences with those of us fortunate enough to find and read this beautifully written narrative.

Stop by and check out this totally impartial blog post I wrote about this well written book. The fact that my last name is Denton is totally coincidental! ;o) Diving Into The Denton Gene Pool - March 07, 2014 - [...]

This was part of my husbands family. It happened long before he was born, and gave us insight to his family.
