Early in 1942, a young man from Rhode Island, Tony Pritchard, who had rarely been outside New England, went into the U.S. Army. By the time he returned home more than five years later, he had been all over the United States and Western Europe, had led troops in combat, had nearly died, had worked with refugees, and in general had encountered a world far wider and far more brutal than anything he had known.

In letters home, discovered after his father's death, his son Arnie Pritchard brings to life his father's experiences during this time in history.
