Major David Ratz has written an introduction and lent his editorial skills to the book Letters to Leah, a memoir relating about the Second World War experiences of Lake Superior Regiment (motor) veteran Michael Fedak.
Born in 1924 in the Village of Brooklands, Manitoba, Fedak served during the Second World War with the Lake Superior Regiment (Motor) in Europe from mid 1944 to 1946. After the war ended Michael married Vera McGeoch, his Scottish sweetheart he met while on leave and settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba with his young family. In 2002, Michael's granddaughter Leah went to Denmark to attend school. He began writing letters relating his wartime experience to her. The result of those letters is this book.
