Letters from Ralph: A Soldier Writes Home During World War II

ByLee and Bonnie Meier

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Ralph J. Mouw, a native of Orange City, Iowa, never forgot his roots – even when he was halfway across the world during World War II. In this collection of letters, you’ll find a firsthand account of what life was like during the war at home and overseas. Although letters were heavily censored during the war years, the editors have added comments to place them in context. The letters are amazing for many reasons, including how calm and composed Ralph always sounded even when fighting was fierce. As a captain of a field artillery unit, he was in constant combat status from Utah Beach in Normandy to the Greater Reich. You’ll be thrilled with this primary account from a soldier who participated in numerous firsts: Ralph was a member of the first American heavy artillery unit to come ashore in Normandy, and his unit was the first to fire during critical battles. Despite the bloodshed, faith and love shine through the turmoil in Letters from Ralph.
