Lot Of 75+ Ww Ii Letters, Brother Killed In Action, Handling Of Japanese Pows For Sale

Lot Of 75+ Ww Ii Letters, Brother Killed In Action, Handling Of Japanese Pows

Up for sale is a really unique set of letters from WWII. This sale includes a total of over 75 letters, V-mails (not the scanned V-mails, but the actual handwritten copies), and Telegrams, primarily from a serviceman (Dale Warren, who was in the Marines) to his wife. There are a couple letters from the serviceman's mother to his wife, which mention the serviceman's brother being hospitalized after being injured and being in bad shape and the mother's worry when she doesn't hear from Dale Warren (believing he might be killed like his brother). But, about 95% of the letters are from the serviceman. Somehow, he was able to include details in his letters that probably should have been censored--but they were not. He mentions contemporaneously that his ship is docking in Leyte, in thePhilippines. There are letters discussing the draft, the decrease in age of draftees to 18, etc. He discusses the capture and transport of Japanese prisoners of war (POWs)--considering how the Japanese preferred death over surrender, this is a rare glimpse into the Japanese who became prisoners. His brother was shot down by the Germans and there is a letter that gives some details about this incident--the brother was first listed as missing in action (MIA), but the serviceman later got confirmation that his brother was killed. The serviceman was sent home for the funeral. There's talk about being shipped to Italy, and there's also a letter about being redeployed to the Pacific after V-E Day. It looks like from Italy, Warren was sent to Panama. There's some really unusual substance to these letters--and as you can see from the photographs, there are censor stickers on many of the envelopes, and I photographed some of the letters to show some of the substance in them. This is a really unusual group of letters.
I have set a reserve, but it is pretty low considering how rare these letters are. If you have any questions, would like to see more photos, etc., please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks for looking!
