This is the story of Joe who has been called up to fight in WWII. It is told mainly through Joe's letters to his brother Charlie, although there are a few letters from Charlie as well. While fairly simple it does talk about a little known fact leading up to D-Day which was the fake armies and weapons intended to fool the Germans. The story was relatively short and may be a good beginner text to WWII. I wish there had been more letters from Charlie although his last letter was great.
