World War II: The Global, Human, and Ethical Dimension series. Published by Fordham University Press. 2007. Barbara Gavin Fauntleroy. Commentary and notes by Starlyn Jorgenson. Edited by Gayle Wurst.

James Gavin’s letters home to his nine-year-old daughter Barbara provide a revealing portrait of the American experience in World War II through the eyes of one of its most dynamic officers. Written from ship decks, foxholes, and field tents―often just before or after a dangerous jump―they capture the day-to-day realities of combat and Gavin’s personal reactions to the war he helped to win. And provide an invaluable self-portrait of a great general, and a great American, in war and peace.
