Four Blue Stars in the Window: A Story of WWII
Mohrman uses diaries, logbooks, interviews, photographs and authentic World War II memorabilia to tell the story of her family’s experiences during WWII. The program follows her father and three uncles as they move from the difficult dust bowl years into the major battles of the Great War including Tarawa, Saipan, Leyte Gulf, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The program also tells of those who waited at home.
