Each man’s experience during wartime is unique. While many soldiers never express their innermost thoughts, this book contains the rare exception. When liaison pilot James Robert Bryce headed to World War II in 1944, he took with him an empty journal. On its pages, he began to record his thoughts and experiences as he waited at Camp Patrick Henry to cross the Atlantic. He continued writing in Africa, Italy, France and Germany as the war waged on. He described both the bizarre and the mundane in vivid, colorful language. He told what it was like to be shot at and what it was like to see others die. This little journal reveals mysteries of war in a most personal way and gives voice to the ordinary soldier.
