Item Description

"The tome puts a face on many of the events surrounding the Pacific Theater of World War II as George battled through New Guinea and into the Admiralty Islands." By John Leptich, The Associated Press Sep 10, 2006 Examiner.com "I spent twelve to sixteen hours a day on the bridge of the USS Swanson and participated in the events as they occurred. I highly recommend A Legacy of Letters as an accurate account of the events. It also answered a lot of questions for me concerning the Admiralty Island invasion." Jack D. Sloan Retired Lieutenant, US Navy. "Writer Clinton Frederick's A Legacy of Letters: One Soldier's Journey not only presents a dramatic account of how he came to know his father through his letters, but also gives us a detailed history of America's heroic battle in the South Pacific." Jim Byrnes Writer, Director, Producer Annotation: WHAT IS THE BOOK ABOUT? Clinton Frederick returned to his grandparents' house for a family wedding in 2002. In the attic, just as he'd remembered, were Japanese swords, parachutes, and other memorabilia from WWII. In a trunk stuck back under the rafters, Clinton made a discovery that would change his life forever. Inside were more than hundred letters written by his father, Captain George Frederick. This correspondence, most of which Capt. Frederick had written to his mother, chronicled from a most personal standpoint some of the major events that shaped the world. The letters also allowed Clinton Frederick, for the first time in his life, to know what his father was really like. WWII - A Legacy of Letters, is a true story of love and war. In it, Frederick artfully weaves together his father's letters with historical information about some of the most important military campaigns of the war.
