"Your father was one of the earlier WWII veterans from the 82nd Airborne Division that I interviewed. For me, it was far more than an interview; your father became a close friend. His war was a "hidden war," with feelings and emotions that were bottled up inside. Your book brilliantly captures this war within and the invisible scars that so many WWII veterans carried, as do the veterans of today’s modern wars. Jaw-dropping in its candor, The Hidden Legacy of WWII expresses the internal struggles of WWII veterans like no other book I’ve ever read. "
Patrick interviewed my father in the late nineteen nineties for his book, Beyond Valor: World War II’s Ranger and Airborne Veterans Reveal the Heart of Combat.
