Dad, the man who lied to save the planet : 12 timeless virtues handed down to a son by an everyday dad by James Michael Pratt( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recalling his growing-up years in Los Angeles following World War II, author James Pratt describes twelve lessons he learned from observing his father, an unpretentious and uneducated man who acquired little of this world's wealth but who lived an honorable life. 'For some, these twelve virtues may seem antiquated, out of date, or hopelessly provincial,' writes Pratt. 'I don't see it that way. What my father practiced and conveyed to me were principles that made it possible for children to grow up in a stable, two-parent home, where there was a widely accepted code of decency, honesty, honor, and patriotism.'This book recalls simpler times, when Southern California was still filled with dusty little towns and when a man could have purchased the bean fields that have become LAX for $5 an acre⁰́₄if he had somehow had five dollars. Readers will enjoy this loving retrospective, a fitting tribute to dads everywhere

The private war of Howie Beach : World War Two combat memoirs from Normandy to the Elbe by Howie Beach( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For some strange reason there was a common belief among World War Two vets that, except for families, relatives, and close friends, the general public really was not interested in their lives as combat soldiers. The passing of time has helped those veterans who are alive today to feel comfortable in contributing their military exploits and personal history. Mine is but one of many stories that can be told, yet as time marches on I realize the extraordinary circumstance which allowed me to survive from Normandy to the Elbe. It has served to validate historical accounts of key battles in five major campaigns, and the atrocities committed by Germany before our freeing of surviving prisoners from death camps. I also feel it my duty as an existing veteran of World War Two to honor my fallen combat brothers who deserved so much more for their valor than a humble grave or burial at sea. Their heroics, values, and comradeship are etched indelibly in my memory. To whatever degree I am able, I wish to give life and meaning to those men who died so long ago, and from whose ultimate sacrifice we have secured the liberties and freedoms we so long have enjoyed. I must say, I feel an added urgency to leave to the world, and my posterity, an eyewitness record of those historic eleven months from our landing on Omaha Beach to meeting the Russian Army on the Elbe River, and the subsequent occupation of defeated Nazi Germany"--Author's statement

What he captured on tape is powerful and thought provoking. ...

This unfiltered footage provides an up close and personal look at daily life in war. The viewer will feel as though they have been given a private look into the lives of these ordinary soldiers who have performed extraordinary acts of bravery in the name of God and Country."--Http://
