“Rebecca Daniels provides uncommon insight into World War II, sharing a personal perspective on history by examining her own father’s letters home during wartime. There are a few things that lend extra intrigue to the war correspondence, including the fact that her father was a non-combat support soldier, and also that he was responsible for censoring sensitive material from the correspondence of fellow soldiers. Rebecca has a good understanding of the history, plus a personal connection and the theatrical experience to make the presentation a crowd-pleaser.”
