This is a short but sweet book about two Christmas carols and their heightened awareness during WWII. The photos in this book are very poignant.

Great gift with new unplayed DVD.

This deals with the beginnings of World War II, Christmas Dec 1941. Churchill was the secret guest of Franklin Roosevelt. They were planning for world War II. Churchill heard "O, Little Town of Bethlehem" for the first time and loved it. "I will be home for Christmas " was written and it gave the service-people hope that maybe I will not be home this year, but maybe next year. This is also a photo album of the 1941 visit of Churchill with Roosevelt and the whole large Roosevelt family. The enclosed DVD In the Dark Streets Shineth is narrated by David McCullough and sang by the world famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This is a great historical book and it is beautifully done.
