Customer Reviews

  A True-Life Read , 12/21/2015
Reviewer: Jennifer
A written record from the first-hand account of the greatest generation, A Boy, A Girl, and the LCI 75 provides readers a glimpse into the emotion of World War II. Through letters, pictures, and narration Bierck weaves a personal tale of his father and mother's courtship while his father served in the Navy. This is a great read for someone interested in military history or ancestry. The letter-writing of that generation was so essential and is an art form that is fleeting. This book captures that essence of the need for normalcy and distraction from the fear and sometimes monotony of war. The book also delves into the LCI's role in WWII told through his father's memories of his time in the war and service on the ship.
