New book titled "Well Done" by: Nancy Hungerford
"I wanted to write a fitting tribute to him – and those who served. So many of them are unsung heroes. Frankly, it was my final "love story" for him." ~ Nancy Hungerford
Nancy Hungerford drew on Robert's writings to create this book over the course of more than ten years. She has done an admirable wordsmith's job of "being" the book's hero and seeing his circumstances as he did. Included are many technical details of flying, such as being catapulted in his plane from the ship's deck to land again on that deck which looked like a postage stamp from the air. As a Naval aviator, flying the Hellcat off of the USS Franklin in the Pacific Theater, having been hit during the missions, and being a witness to the deaths of comrades and pals, reveals the impact WWII had on Robert's life.
Nancy Hungerford's work can be appreciated by older readers who lived through those times and by younger people with interest in and aspirations to a higher, sky-level, calling.

About the Author
Nancy R. Hungerford grew up in a small town on Candlewood Lake, Connecticut. After Austria's independence in 1955, she spent many summers there with her Austrian family. She settled in the Big Apple and became president of Creative Color, the Print Lab, and Republic Color, Inc. She also served as script reader and financial consultant for a small motion picture company. Nancy and her husband, Bob, moved to Orient, New York, and began Hungerford & Associates, a small direct response/advertising agency. Their love of writing, painting, and photography inspired them to begin a lifestyle publication, North Fork Country, along with the award-winning newsletter Just Cats!
Nancy has written columns and ghostwritten two books. Much of Well Done has been taken from her husband's WWII logs and journals. This book is her first solo endeavor.
