  • Readers of history and social history

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3/5 overall


War Bonds is a collection of short essays on the lives of World War II-generation couples who often turned courtships of three months or less into six decade marriages. Collected and told by a newspaper columnist, each section reads much as a surface human interest story complete with a love lessons advice from the couples and a representative war time song. The  result does lack some depth, presenting a vivid but  disappearing greatest generation much  quieted by time and hindsight, but the very definition of heartwarming.  And kudos to the author for a title in pun.
