Chris Hull is a graduate of Chattanooga State Community College, the University of Tennessee, and the University of the South School of Theology and has served in ministry giving love and attention to hospital and nursing home patients in their final stages of life. He has published his new book “Valentine’s Day at Normandy Beach: Above and Beyond the Call of Duty” which is a vivid first-hand account of daily life for a soldier fighting the Nazis in specific combat situations in the Second World War.

The author shares, “This book—its letters—represents my father’s view of D-day and his missions, typed in many cases from a foxhole. David Valentine Hull earned his undergraduate degree from Brown University. He was instrumental in the construction of Saint David’s, an episcopal church in Cranston, Rhode Island. A treasurer for the Victor Ring Traveler Co. in Providence, Rhode Island—David Hull was a crackerjack individual who earned, among other medals, a silver star and three bronze stars. He met the Nazis where they were and contributed to their ultimate demise. This collection of letters gives one a taste of World War II, a glimpse of the nature of a soldier in those times, and a glimpse into what makes America great.”

Published by Page Publishing, Chris Hull’s engrossing book is a collection of letters written by David Valentine Hull that paints a picture of war as clear as the stroke of an artist’s brush in a painting, expressing the texture of battle, its depth, colors, and hues in its words, sentences, and paragraphs.
