After searching for her own father killed in World War II, Ann Mix founded the American WWII Orphans Network. The voices in this book belong to sons and daughters who for half a century have seldom spoken of their fathers or of their own lives after the deaths of their fathers. Memories revealed through interviews, letters, family histories and remembrances are remarkable for their honesty and quiet courage. 60 photos.
