I laughed, I cried and I was in awe of the many love stories in this book. They all came together during WWII and even though life was tough they stuck together. Such an inspiration!

I love this era. Their lives might have been hard without much money but the optimism this generation had served as a foundation for our future. No wonder they are called the greatest generation!
A very Sweet book about connections between lovers and spouses during war time.
Maureen Mahowald rated it 4 of 5 stars

This delightful book would be a good wedding or anniversary present for young couples. Included in these stories of long term marriages are nuggets of wisdom about how to stay happy together. The top three: friendship, respect and commitment.

I enjoyed reading Cindy Hval’s War Bonds. The book is a collection of love stories. Each chapter features a new couple. Each chapter is short in length, but, not lacking in heart. What the chapters all have in common, of course, is that all the husbands fought in World War II. Another commonality is that all the marriages lasted. Each story is worth sharing; each voice deserves to be heard.

I enjoyed meeting all the men and women in this book. I enjoyed their stories: stories about how they met, when and where they met, how they fell in love, their courtships–in some cases years, in other cases mere weeks, their proposals, their weddings, their marriages. The book shares their challenges and struggles: before, during, and after the war. I really enjoyed the photographs as well!

I would definitely recommend War Bonds. I love reading about World War II both fiction and nonfiction. I love reading love stories. This book was just right for me.
