LOVE & KISSES, MAX: An Untold Story of World War II

As the military waged war against enemy forces in 1944, strict rules of communication and secrecy were developed to keep strategic locations and battle information out of enemy hands. Letters home were censored, and diaries forbidden. Here for the first time a private and secret journal, kept by a sailor aboard the USS Yorktown, is revealed. Terse journal entries disclosing casualties and battles engaged in by “The Fighting Lady” are in striking contrast to the thoughtful and affectionate letters sent home to a beloved family. This is the story of one little family’s attempt at normalcy in the midst of separation caused by war. It illustrates the sacrifices our military families make to preserve and protect our freedom. Actual news reports of the time are a living lesson in history, while one sailor’s outlook on life aboard an aircraft carrier is both enlightening and amusing. A little girl, who misses her daddy because he now “lives at the war,” greets you throughout with a confused “Hello?” This is a unique perspective into war and a stark reminder of the way in which war impacts families.
