Review: AN AMERICAN FAMILY IN WORLD WAR II by Captain Ralph L. Minker, Sandra O’Connell, and Harry Butowsky

Mike from Go Read a Damn Book read An American Family in World War II by Captain Ralph L. Minker and edited by Sandra O’Connell and Harry Butowsky, which counts toward the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from his review:

Most of the letters contain mundane information about his sister’s math test or the performance of the high school football team. While I’m sure the letters were important to the senders and recipients I can’t say the same for me. Minker does discuss some of his training, but even that is not overly interesting. I held out hopes that when he went overseas the letters would become more interesting. About three quarters through he gets sent to England but due to war time censorship his letters actually became less interesting. The editors did include a paragraph description of each mission though.
