There are few times throughout the year when the longing for home and family is stronger than around the holiday season. What a difficult time it must have been for the U.S. military personnel serving overseas during the long years of the Second World War—far from home with no certainty of when, or if, they’d be able to return.
Author Gail Kittleson was kind enough to ask me to stop by her site to share some stories from the United States’ four Christmases during World War II. If you’d like to stop by and give it a read, here is the direct link.
I’ll also be giving a free copy of my new novel, Where Shall I Flee? to one commentor on her site.
In preparation for the post, I found a number of related images. While they didn’t make it into the final post, pictures have a way of telling their own stories, and I’d like to share them here today as well.
Wishing you all the best in this last week before Christmas,
