Dear Frank: Babe Ruth, the Red Sox, and the Great War is a piece of historical fiction for the middle grade reader. The story follows a series of letters written by one brother to another during the latter part of 1918. It's the last year of World War I and the Boston Red Sox, with Babe Ruth on the mound, are going to the World Series. Andrew, at home in the Boston area, writes to his older brother, Frank, a soldier on Europe's western front, to catch him up on all the news. An informative and moving account of little explored terrain.
