True Stories From World War Two's Hometown Heroes

    What the Book is About

 

Bestselling author Elinor Florence conducted personal interviews with twenty-eight veterans of World War Two, ordinary men and women who were thrust into the deadliest conflict of all times. Many of them had never told their stories before. 

This printed book has 256 pages and is illustrated with more than one hundred original photographs.

Among the twenty-eight veterans interviewed:

  • Fred Sutherland of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, the last Canadian dambuster

  • Jessie Middleton of Abbotsford, British Columbia, a nursing sister who treated Canadian soldiers

  • Stocky Edwards of Comox, British Columbia,  Canada’s greatest living fighter ace

  • Merle Taylor of Lochaber, Nova Scotia, who taught Morse Code to the pilots in training.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the stories published in the printed book are available to read for free, here on the author's blog. To read them, click: Wartime Wednesdays
