About the book:
This narrative is a unique blend of memoir and biography. The author weaves together his search for 2nd Lt. Robert R. Kurtz, the father he never knew, with the emerging picture of his father’s life, vividly telling a story that is war chronicle, romance, and personal reflection. Robert Kurtz was stationed and trained at Casper Army Air Force Base from 1943-44.
