KIRKUS REVIEW

Parts of this have been widely publicized through extracts in Readers' Digest -- through Mr. O'Brien's column in the Chicago Daily News -- through broadcasting. Now for the first time available in a slim little book -- for the plus book market, which --in this case -- should be enhanced by its unique publicity -- and by the subject matter, which comes close to many households today. The story of a father who watches his son go off to war, of the worry that is always with him, and finally of the telegram announcing the fact that the boy is missing in action. Moving-without sentimentality.
