Description: nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;"When Is Daddy Coming Home?" is the moving story of one young American family during World War II. The war was coming to a close in Europe, and Richard Carlton Haney was only four years old when a telegram arrived at his family’s home, informing them of his father’s death. That moment was burned into the young boy’s memory and it changed his and his mother’s lives forever. Sixty years later Haney, now a professional historian, reconstructs his parents’ lives during the war, drawing from their letters, his mother’s recollections, and his own memories to create a unique blend of history and memoir. As the author recounts his father’s experiences in the 17th Airborne Division, he also recalls the effects of wartime rationing, scrap drives, and censored mail on his family at home. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Richard Haney is an expert on early-twentieth-century American history and on military history. Combining his personal memories and experiences with his knowledge of history, he has created a compelling, and often heart-rending, picture of life in wartime America. No one who reads this powerful story will come away unmoved. Distributed for the Wisconsin Historical Society Press
