U.S. Army Life 1941 -- 1945: In the Letters of Theodore Pattengill Foster By Lille Foster
Paperback: $26.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Theodore P. Foster loved to receive letters—more so at boot camp than anywhere he had ever been. He corresponded with twenty-three people from 1941 to 1945—his parents, his sisters,... More > aunts and uncles, cousins and close friends. These letters were saved by his parents, Theodore G. and Margaret P. Foster. The collection of letters came into my possession in the late 1990’s. They sat in a Hollinger box at my home for twenty years. I have extensively footnoted the collection in order to identify the people, places, events, objects and obsolete terms mentioned in the letters. A big drawback to transcribing the letters was Theodore P. Foster’s poor spelling. I wanted the reader to read his words exactly as he had written them—spelling and punctuation mistakes included. My father never learned the spelling rule, “I Before E Except After C” and wrote ‘recieve’ hundreds of times in his letters. I think you will enjoy reading these interesting and informative letters.< Less
