Book #Spotlight & #Giveaway: We Had A Job To Do #adultnonfiction #history #WWII #veteran



In light of Veteran's Day yesterday, I am spotlighting a book as part of the iRead Book Tours. I honor our veterans and thankful for what all the women and men have done for our country. I have not read the book as of yet and look forward to doing so in the near future.

If you would like to win one of 9 gift sets which include: a copy of this book, an American flag (3x5) and a gently used Glen Miller CD, scroll to the bottom of this post and enter.


Description for We Had a Job to Do:

This heartfelt tribute to World War II veterans is history that reads like fiction.

Follow a soldier who fought in Patton’s Third Army and who landed on Omaha Beach at 9 a.m. on D-Day; a female Army Air Forces nurse who made helping veterans her life’s work; a fighter pilot who flew with the African-American unit known as the Tuskegee Airmen and who was on one of the teams that won the first Top Gun meet after the war; a guard in a top-secret intelligence base outside of Washington, D.C. where top German weapons scientists were interrogated; a female aircraft mechanic who served in the Navy and is still active in veterans affairs seventy years later; a gunner on a B-17 heavy bomber who was shot down and spent fourteen months in German prison camps; an airman in General Curtis LeMay’s 20th Air Force, the unit that dropped the atomic bombs, and more.

Get to know some of the patriots who served in World War II.
