Sinossi

Walter Hawes - a member of “America’s Greatest Generation”

“This is the story of a serviceman and his family that is brought to life through a collection of his personal letters that were penned in Italy and North Africa. Staff Sergeant Walter Hawes’ viewpoint springs from a pivotal time; a worldwide drama that took place nearly three score and ten years ago. As his story unfolds through simple words intended at the time only for the eyes of the addressee, an aunt and uncle in Indiana, the reader gains a sense of the enormity of what was transpiring in their world.” – Randy Finfrock. Oklahoma Honor Flights Committee

“Letters from Walter is a typical story of many men who served during WWII as members of the Greatest Generation. Some lived in big cities while others lived in small towns. Some were high school graduates and others were not. They experienced good times and bad times during their lives and all had stories. This book, based on letters written by Walter to his family along with family input, outlines his life from birth to death with particular emphasis on his service as a G.I. in the U.S. Army during WWII.” – Keith Myers. “The Traveling Military Museum”. Tulsa, Oklahoma

Doug Eaton was born in Kansas and grew up working on the family farm in Southeast Kansas. He graduated from Pittsburg State University, Pittsburg, Kansas, with a degree in Accounting. After college, he moved to Tulsa, became a CPA and worked for several energy companies. While working full-time, he attended law school at the University of Tulsa at night and received a law degree. He developed friendships with several veterans and became involved with the Oklahoma Honor Flights organization. His deep respect for American military veterans fueled the desire to write this book as a token of recognition for the service and sacrifice our veterans endured in order that we may enjoy all of our freedoms. He lives in Tulsa with his wife Jan, a teacher with Jenks Schools. His son, Kurt, is an attorney in Tulsa and his daughter, Kristi, is a journalist with the Associated Press.

5.0 su 5 stelle My Uncle Walter's Letters 17 febbraio 2013
Di Connie E. Connely - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
First off, I must admit why I love this book. Walter Hawes was my uncle and the book's contributor, Wilma Hawes Connely, is my mother. She is 83 years old now with some recent health problems. September 2, 2012, I had to call an ambulance for my mother after she passed out. She told the medics, "I can't get sick. I have to help Doug Eaton write a book about my brother's World War II letters!" So this book has been a priceless labor of love.

Letters from Walter would make a great gift for someone who likes World War II history, and even for someone who thinks they don't. I say this because there is a lot of history in these sweet letters my young uncle wrote to his favorite aunt and uncle. In a letter dated Sunday, August 12, 1945, Uncle Walter tells about hearing that the War was over. "Sure a great day!" he said. Isn't it a shame that people don't write letters these days?

The net proceeds from the sale of this book will be contributed to the Oklahoma Honor Flights to assist Oklahoma military veterans the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. (at no expense to them) in order to visit the memorials in recognition of their service and sacrifice. [...]

After recieving "Letters from Walter", I sat down and started reading the book. I didn't stop until I had finished reading the entire book. It is written in a way that it keeps your attension and has a mixture of world war II and personal experiences of a
soldier 's letters to and from his aunt and uncle while he was overseas. I would recommend this book to all ages. I give it a five star rating.

5.0 su 5 stelle World War II Interest 25 febbraio 2013
Di Alex Blue - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
I am a history buff and love reading about World War II and the brave veterans who fought for us during the war. This book was interesting due to the fact that the reader can actually read the letters the young soldier wrote home and can get a real sense of his frustrations, fears and excitement while he served in Europe and Northern Africa. I think anyone with an interest in World War II and related history would enjoy this book, especially fellow veterans who may have experienced similar emotions during their service.

5.0 su 5 stelle Easy read! 17 novembre 2013
Di john - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I was interested in the book due to the age of the author who wrote it and due to wanting insight as to what men serving our country feel, think about, and what they write to their loved ones. This was an excellent book! It was easy to read and I very much appreciated the repetition within the book due to me having difficulty remembering dates, names, and etc.... By the end of the book I felt like I knew Walter. He could have been the young man next door. Excellent Job - hope another book is in the works! Cynthia

This book is wonderful, and is more that the letters written by Walter. While reading it, I learned much about the family and their lives. The story of how the letters were discovered is fascinating, and is a genealogist/historian's nightmare.
