We Interrupt This Childhood To Bring You World War II is a chronicle of a time that was, and is no more. It was an innocent time which was brutally interrupted .changing the lives of people all over the globe. Children found great pleasure in going to Saturday movies, building neighborhood club houses, observing and learning from the adults in their families and having close relationships with town merchants, doctors, farmers, each others grandparents, ministers and school and music teachers. After the war started every thing changed. The changes came quickly and continued at a numbing pace until at last the war was over. By then, our whole world had ceased to exist as it once was, never to return again.During this period of our history we learned a whole new vocabulary with new words such as Jeep, oleomargarine, GI, atrocities, Axis, Allies, beachheads, blitz, buzz bombs, War Bonds, ration stamps, and refugees. There was a sense of patriotism that permeated every aspect of all our lives; a sense of oneness of purpose that has yet to return to our country. You may call it history, remembrance or living in the past, but by whatever name you give it, it remains a personal treasure to be shared with those who succeed you. For those of us who experienced WWII whether as servicemen or those left behind, this book is to be shared with your children and grandchildren so they may understand how all of us were effected during the greatest crisis of the century.
