A good book allows us to become part of the story within its pages, leaves us wishing we didn't have to say good-bye to its characters and makes us better in one way or another for having read it. "All My Love, George" is a good book. Technician Third Grade, George Burks was a medic who served and gave his life in the South Pacific during World War II. This book chronicles his three-year journey from boot camp to days just prior to his death through the letters he wrote home to his family. These letters are intertwined with the thoughts and reminiscence of his younger brother-sixty-five years after George's death. Readers will grieve a family's loss as if it were their own, be put in the midst of one of the greatest periods of history in our nation and develop a sense of pride in this young soldier who selflessly gave his all for the life we enjoy today. The man George was-genuine, thoughtful, sincere, valiant and a real-life hero is evident in both the letters and the tender, proud words of his brother-a man whose teen years were overshadowed by his loss of a much-loved and admired older brother.
