I won this on Goodreads First Reads - thank you et al
An amazing book! A very intimate glimpse into one family and the Korean War. I can imagine the joy little 4 year old Ann Hughes felt every time she received a letter from her father. Very ingenious way of communicating with a child missing her daddy, unable to grasp the seriousness of war or the peril her father faced daily. I'm sure Dr. Hughes felt comfort, closeness as well as a cathartic feeling with each letter he penned.
Dr. Hughes wrote his daughter often using words and drawn pictures to explain, to some degree, of what was happening in his daily life. His sharing was humorous and touching, I can image each letter was received with anticipation and elation from Ann.
The book also cites facts of the Korean War which I found to be very interesting and informative. Great photographs were included as well. This is a great book for the entire family, a wonderful tool to learn about the Korean War.
I thank the Hughes family for sharing the letters between a father and daughter during a very difficult time. Dr. Hughes was a recipient of The Bronze Star twice, with V and oak crest. Dr. Hughes demonstrated bravery in the midst of battle while attempting to save his brothers in arms.
A book such as this really touches the reader, the impact of war, the sacrifices, the losses, the unspoken. Letters to Ann: The Korean War 1950-1951 is a must read, bittersweet, poignant and touching. A wonderful way to remember "the forgotten war" and those that fought bravely risking their life and those that perished.
"The great truism of war is that it makes good men do bad things, and bad men do terrible things. Letters to Ann offers an important addendum: that through the worst moments of war, the best part of humanity, our ability to love and comfort one another, survives intact. It's impossible to read this collection of a soldier's letters from the battlefield in Korea to his 4 year old daughter at home without being charmed and touched." - Glenn Garvin, columnist, Miami Herald
