One WWII Soldier's Story of War, Love and Life
After the 2006 death of her father, Bud Irish, a recipient of the Silver Star and the Purple Heart, Teresa Irish found over a thousand letters written to his parents and sweetheart during World War II. Postmarked between November 1942 and December 1945, and accompanied by over 250 photographs, these treasures formed the basis of Teresa’s book, A Thousand Letters Home: One WWII Soldier’s Story of War, Love and Life.
From lonesome moonlit nights listening to the Your Hit Parade to the foxholes and front lines in Germany, this book is trip back in time, and a tribute to the courage of a generation. Sponsored by the Friends of Troy Public Library.
