Abstract:

Now an old man, John is haunted by memories of enlisting to fight in World War II, a decision which forced him to face the horrors of war and changed his life forever. Just 17 when the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, John Duane wants nothing more than to enlist. Then he falls in love with Ginny Burton, who is against all war. But John would rather die than be judged a coward. Fifty years later, John is haunted by memories of 1942--of his family, of Ginny, and of the nightmare that was World War II. "A poignant love story."
