Laura's War is a nostalgic and gripping story of a soldier and his girl during World War II. It was inspired when the author re-read the letters written by the love of her life from the time they met as university students until his return from the European Theatre. The letters show the evolution of how one citizen soldier became an effective leader. Some eloquently describe the life of a First Division lieutenant at the front, some are hastily written notes on scraps of paper, and all arc incorporated in this book. Laura Hoffman weaves a personal tale based on these letters, her soldier's wartime log and her own life as a journalist during the war.
