From beloved broadcaster Charles Osgood, a poignant memoir about one unforgettable childhood year during World War II, now in paperbackDefending Baltimore Against Enemy Attack is a gloriously funny and nostalgic slice of American life and a moving look at World War II from the perspective of a child far away from the fighting, but very conscious of the reverberations. With a sharp eye for details, Osgood captures the texture of life in a bygone era.
