    Those of you who have been kind enough to read and comment on my blog, Wartime Wednesdays, may be interested to know that I have collected twenty-eight of my best veteran interviews into a non-fiction book titled My Favourite Veterans: True Stories From World War Two's Hometown Heroes.
    Among my interviews are the following:

    · Fred Sutherland – The Last Canadian Dambuster
    · Stocky Edwards – Canada’s Greatest Living Fighter Ace
    · Peter Stevens – The German Jew Who Bombed Berlin
    · The Fighting Ballendines – Eight Aboriginal Brothers Who Went to War
    · Ron Jenkins – The Pilot Who Bought His Own Lancaster
    · Jessie Middleton – The Nursing Sister Who Healed the Wounds of War
    · Casey Scheffer – His Heroic Family Saved Jewish Lives
    · Bud Abbott – The Pilot Who Rained Terror on the Tirpitz

    This book is my lasting tribute to those brave men and women who were engaged in the deadly conflict, thirteen of whom are still living.

    Thanks! I think I may have posted this in the wrong category. It probably should have gone into the section on World War Two books. Perhaps you could move it for me, if you think more users will see it there.

    I think you are in the right place. I'm sure others will take a peek.
