Cut the Power Fergy by Ronald Tousignant, Lila Ferguson Christman
On July 7 of 1924, Howard and Winifred Ferguson were blessed with the arrival of their first-born, a boy, whom they named Kenneth Gerry Ferguson.
Ken grew up to be very handsome and full of life. He was, in high school, very mischievous.
But like all other good American boys his age, he was very patriotic. With America being immersed in, now, this second World War, many boys Ken’s age were drafted or volunteered for duty as Americans to help the European allies to fight and defeat the enemies across two oceans.
Ken enlisted in the US Army Air Force (USAAF) as a cadet on his 18th birthday, July 7, 1942, following graduation from Gardner High School.
From the letters to the family after he went off to war, this is his story, the story of an American hero,
from enlistment through 50 bombing missions and 16 fighter missions.
This is not what I usually read and not usually would review but it really seemed interesting so I gave it a shot. This is very good. Even if you are not into Historical biography this book is very good and informative. You get to learn more about Word War II and how family back home dealt with it. As a army wife I thought it was very informative. I think even if you are not into historical biographies you might still find it a good read.
If this is something you would be interested in you can purchase this ebook at amazon.com and AKW books .
I give this 4 out of 5
