How the Site Works

The experience of having a website is new to me. Please email your comments to

The collection is divided by year --1943, 1944 and 1945. Each month contains every letter written during that month. Click on a month and you will be able to read each letter one after another, at any magnification that is comfortable for you.

If you are having a problem viewing the letters, click here to download the latest version of Adobe Reader for your browser.

People Places and Things is the place to look for information about my family and other people I discuss in the letters. It will be a kind of grab-bag of names, facts, acronyms, and events. I'll add comments and other features from time to time. If you can’t find what you are looking for, Google it!

The Gallery has photos relevant to the letters.
