About the Book

Mike Stafford tells the story of his father with humor and understanding. Through many hours of interviews, Mike relives his father's experience during World War II and what it was like for a naïve young man to face death for the first time. His father spoke of snipers firing at him and remembering that "just a few months ago, I was running for a touchdown and now I was running for my life." After the war, Lyle continued to serve his country at the Pine Bluff Arsenal, married and raised a large family, and died at the age of 86. Mike recalls that if not for the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that ended the war, he and the rest of his siblings would not be here. Not only is this Lyle's story, but the story of innumerable survivors of the "Greatest Generation" dying out at the rate of 1200 per day.
About the Author: Mike Stafford is the youngest of eight children of Lyle and Mary Ann Stafford. Interested in his father's experience in World War II, Mike interviewed him over a two year period, and this memoir is the result. A new author, Mike is an experienced career coach and business leader with over 20 years of professional leadership and management. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Prior to private work, Mike served honorably in the United States Navy on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier. He is the father of four children.
