World War II Radio Heroes: Letters of Compassion
(2007) by Lisa
L. Spahr with Austin S Camacho
More than 60 years had passed before she found them.
Dozens of letters written to her family during WWII-from total strangers-to
tell her great-grandmother that her son had been captured and was being held
as a POW. How did they know this? Through short-wave radio, POWs were allowed
to state their names and hometowns and sometimes relay a short message to
their families. Scores of Americans, listening to the German propaganda from
so far away, heard her grandfather's information and took it upon themselves
to write to her great-grandmother. All of these dear people wanted to give her
great-grandmother a measure of comfort to know her son was alive. That was
only the beginning of her journey. This book is a dedication to them-the radio
heroes of WWII.
