In 1942, artist E.J. Bird was drafted into the U.S. army at the age of 31 and participated in campaigns in the Pacific Theater. Through original diary entries and 75 pages of new memoirs, Bird offers a glimpse of military life during wartime: the USO dances, K and C rations, KP, basic training, barracks life, and uniforms, as well as descriptions of refugees, heavy fighting, and the grisly aftermath of bombs and landmines. Bird's lively illustrations (75 drawings and 27 watercolors) of soldiers, civilians, and landscapes accompany the text. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ( more
