     My father, Brad Wilson, grew up in the sleepy rural country community of Redwood Valley, California, and was used to playing with his dog, diving into the local swimming hole, and helping out on his extended family’s ranch. Then came World War II, and suddenly he was in Europe as a member of the 445th bomb group of the 8th Air Force, flying missions into enemy territory, constantly in harm’s way. Eventually he was shot down over Germany and taken as a prisoner of war. He made it through these events the only way he could… one day at a time.   He wrote this book in the last few years of his life.  I have incorporated all of his letters home as well as his actual Prisoner-of-War Journal, which he wrote while incarcerated at Stalag Luft 1 in Germany.  EVERYDAY P.O.W. is the fascinating story of an everyday boy in extraordinary circumstances.  Please give it a try!
