Delayed Legacy: A Son's Amazing Search for the Full Story of His Father's Death After D-Day

Customer Reviews:

Don't Delay - Read "Delayed Legacy"

By Jim Berg "Music Lover" - November 7, 2005

Confession: the author, Conrad Netting IV, is a personal friend of mine. But even he would want me to set the record straight about his labor of love for the past 11 years - compiling his Delayed Legacy.

Having said that, Conrad has reached into his heart and written a magnificent story about a parental relationship he never witnessed and about a father he never knew. His research about ancillary events surrounding their story brings into sharp focus a time when the country and many young couples were in grave danger for their very existence.

But most enjoyable has been his presentation of love letters between two 1940s era love birds who barely knew each other before they were separated by war and finally death. His poignant retelling of the discovery of the myriad of details surrounding his parents courtship and marriage through newly discovered documents (all unavailable to him during his mother's life) makes the book a captivating page-turner - even when the... read more

Wonderful Story

By Scott Griswold - May 27, 2006

Unlike the previous reviewer, I did not find the love letter portion of the book the most compelling. For me, it was the story of the wartime events and its amazing discovery approximately 58 years later. So, I guess there is more than one reason to read this book! The description of the author's reaction to the package from France even gave me goose-bumps. That must have been an incredible moment.

Beautifully Crafted War Story

By Sandra Schmidt - January 14, 2011

Like Conrad Netting I am a World War II war orphan who was told very little about my father. Unlike Conrad I was not left the wonderful diary written by his mother and the letters from his father. This is a remarkable love story. I found myself crying throughout the book. All of us whose lives were influenced by this terrible tragedy should read this very well crafted book. Many thanks to Conrad for giving me another look at the what my parents endured.
