A Marine in World War II
From Notre Dame to Iwo Jima and beyond
letters from Second Lieut. John Hyndman, USMCR 1943-1946
2010 287 page illustrated paperback
More than 16 million Americans served in World War II. Most of their stories have been lost. About 2 million are left, most now well into their 80s. Americans are well served whenever an oral history, a memoir, or letters are preserved in an archive or repository. Unfortunately most young men in the service were not letter wrIters. John Hyndman wrote his family regularly, a substantial number of letters they give us story of a young man representative of his generation.
