Reflections of World War II

Thank you for your interest in our anthology, Reflections of World War II. This book came about while I was the activities director at an assisted living community and I decided to host a World War II recollections group. From the recordings of the sessions, we worked on converting their memories into stories. The goal was to preserve those stories for their children, grandchildren and generations to come.

What we’ve ended up with is an incredible collection of stories that represents a verbal snapshot of the period as told by four very different people who were there. On the surface they seemed to have nothing in common: LaVon Hogge was a girl raised in a small town in Nebraska; Edna Sparkes was a seven year old girl living in England; Russ Harris was a paperboy in LA working his way through high school; and Raymond Bybee was a young man in the Army Air Corp looking for adventure. The one thing they did have in common was being part of the Greatest Generation. Their experiences brought them together nearly seventy years later to share stories.
