When Charlies brother, Joe, is called up to fight in World War II, he promises to write letters to tenyearold Charlie as often as he can. It wont make up for not being there to help Charlie out with the neighborhood bullies, but its all Joe can do. Life is tough for a soldier, and Joe tells Charlie all about it, from long hikes in endless rain and mud to the stray dog his company adopts. But when Joe is sent on a secret mission with the one soldier he cant stand, he will have to face risks that place their mission and their lives in grave danger. Charlie knew his brother was strong, but he will discover that Joe is more of a hero than he lets on. Will Joes letters give Charlie the strength to stand up for himself and be brave, too?
