PASSED BY CENSOR
LETTERS FROM THE WAR
BY MAJOR JOHN W. CALDER
Published by Catbird Media
This collection of correspondence from a sensitive young Army officer, whose care and concern for his loved ones overshadowed his own wartime problems, spells out in poignant detail how the harsh reality of wartime turned boys into men before their time.
Written with an appealing gentleness, they take the reader into the everyday life of an officer abroad, the ordinary but pesky problems of obtaining a new lens for a camera or paper to write home on, and the deep disappointment when mail fails to arrive.
One is inexorably drawn into this very personal story
