I am Mark Stuart Ellison, the surviving co-author of Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel: World War II through the Eyes of a Radio Man. I have worked as an attorney, reporter, and freelance writer. My articles have been published in Physicians Financial News, Dutchess Magazine, and The Poughkeepsie Journal. Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel is an award-winning novel that combines actual wartime letters, a love story, and six years of historical research. It is based on the experiences of my late father and co-author, Eli Ellison, who was an air corps radio truck operator in the 327th Fighter Control Squadron in Western Europe from 1943 to 1945. Although a novel, Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel is about 90 percent true. The wartime correspondence in Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel was transcribed from original V-mail letters written by my father to his parents and sister Ethel while he was overseas. Most of the remaining text is a synthesis of my father's strongest memories, library research, research of trusted historical websites, and considerable material provided by Belgian historian Jacques Wynants and other authorities. Additional sources and consultants are given due credit in the Preface. Over 35 pages of endnotes and references appear after the main text. In addition, there are nine pages of wartime photographs provided by my father, The Imperial War Museum in London, and Belgian sources. Two images of original V-mail letters in my father's handwriting, with army censor's stamp visible, are included in the book's photographic section. Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel could not be told as non-fiction because there were some factual gaps in my father's memories, and we wanted to protect the anonymity of certain people. Some names, ranks, and/or physical descriptions were changed. However, the overwhelming majority of events depicted in Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel actually occurred. A plot summary of Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel and endorsements appear below. The real-life Eli Ellison was the model for the Don Quix character. PLOT SUMMARY On October 7, l942, Don Quix enlists in the Air Corps. He's slated to be an aerial gunner, but his flying dreams are shattered when he's caught AWOL with buddy Ken Jackson. Don manages to become a radio truck supervisor in a fighter control squadron while Ken goes to a demolition unit. As an army engineer, Ken barely survives D-Day on Normandy's "Bloody Omaha." During a baseball game in a French forest, Don moves his head slightly, saving himself from a sniper's bullet. Arriving in Verviers, Belgium in September 1944, Don and his fellow radio men endure frequent buzz bomb attacks. Due to a miscalculation in army strategy, they find themselves on the front lines during the Battle of the Bulge. Don's reunion with Ken, now a tech sergeant with a bomb disposal outfit, is marred by tragedy, dampening Don's torrid love affair with beautiful seamstress Denise Vervier. Denise's husband, sent to a forced labor camp in 1940, is presumed dead. When he unexpectedly returns, Don and Denise face a heartbreaking choice. ENDORSEMENTS "A vivid story brought to realistic life." —Midwest Book Review "A coming-of-age story that contains romance, tragedy, and comedy." —The Lancaster (Pennsylvania) Sunday News "Puts the reader on the front line...shows what life was like for the everyday soldier." —Poughkeepsie Journal.com "I enjoyed Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel so much I could hardly put it down. It ought to be widely read as an excellent way of recalling World War II." —Hans L. Trefousse Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History Brooklyn College and Graduate Center of the City University of New York “Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel delicately mixes fiction and history to tell the story of an American air corpsman during World War II. His precious letters enhance a grand book deserving warm appreciation. People from my hometown will be as moved and fascinated as many Americans who will, no doubt, eagerly read it.” —Jacques Wynants, Belgian Historian Author of Verviers 1940 and Verviers Libéré “Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel paints an absorbing picture of the daily life of America’s greatest generation. Vets will find themselves reliving their own experiences—the boredom, the loneliness, the fear, and the role of fate in life and death. For the rest of us, Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel is social history at its best.” —Dr. Stanley J. Michalak Senior Associate, Foreign Policy Research Institute, Philadelphia Professor Emeritus of Government, Franklin and Marshall College “Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel effectively captures light and tragic events in the life of Don Quix, a GI from the Bronx who served during the London Blitz, Normandy invasion, and Battle of the Bulge. A fond recollection, an easy read, and well worth one’s quiet reflection.” —Henry Stremba, USMC, WW II Former Executive Vice President, American Society for Testing Materials "Bravo on a job well done. I will share Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel with my son and father. This is a tale that needs to be understood by those of our parents' generation, our generation, and future generations." —Joseph Nagler Author and Composer "Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel is about enlisted men and how they find companionship, compassion, and deal with the realities of war...I give Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel 10 thumbs up and a five star rating. It's worth every minute that you spend reading it." —Lillian Cauldwell Live Talk Radio Show Host "Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel's finely-wrought text is an impressive wedding of historical fact and creative ingenuity. It was particularly moving and enlightening for me because at the time of World War II, I was a mere bobby-soxer. I recommend Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel for persons of my generation, and for anyone interested in an entertaining, well-written, historical novel." —Marie Traficante Trump Professor Emeritus of Voice State University of New York at Purchase "Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel grippingly informs us of life caught up in the twentieth century's most dramatic events, and does so mightily." —Rabbi Dr. Gerald M. Meister Advisor, Israel-Christian Affairs Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs Consulate General of Israel, New York City "This is one that you will not want to put down once you pick it up." —Larry Whitler News Talk Anchor, WOCA Radio Ocala, Florida "A phenomenal book." —Doug Miles Host of "Suncoast Morning Magazine" WIBQ Radio Sarasota, Florida "Absolutely awesome...fascinating stuff." —Ed Ferenc Host of "America's Workforce" WKTX-AM 830 Radio Cleveland, Ohio "It's rare that we get a look at World War II like this. I highly recommend Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel." —Ed Jones Host of "Musical Stages" KBEM-FM 88.5 Radio Minneapolis, Minnesota "A fascinating book." —Annette Ayoub Host of "Saturday Day Brightener" KPCL-FM 95.7 Radio Albuquerque, New Mexico "A delightful read." —Reagan Smith Co-Host of "The Smith & Riley Show" Syndicated Radio Program Orlando, Florida
