Sinopsis: Guy Whidden, II is a veteran 101st Airborne paratrooper. As the title suggests, Guy s censored letters often forced his family to 'read between the lines' to figure out the subtle messages he was sending. Through Guy s letters and narrative, we relive many of his experiences: Army training, the voyage to England, his historic jumps into Normandy on D-Day and into Holland during Operation Market Garden, and being seriously wounded by a German morter shell that killed three of his friends...nearly causing his own leg to be amputated. This book gives a realistic and yet light-hearted look at what Guy went through during that period of his life. But it does not stop there. Guy is still busy! An epilogue relates his activities since WWII including his re-jump into Normandy in 1994.
