Review of Hidden Legacy of WWII by Patrick K. O’Donnell, author of We Were One, Give Me Tomorrow and many other books.

"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...

Longest Day excerpt – my grandmother’s perspective on D-Day

Posted by on Jan 5, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

From Cornelius Ryan’s The Longest Day, 1959 First Edition – In San Francisco, Mrs. Lucille M. Schultz, a nurse at the Veterans Hospital at Fort Miley, was on night duty when the announcement was made. She wanted to stay by the radio in the hope that the 82nd Airborne would be mentioned; she suspected the division was in the assault. But she was also afraid the radio might excite her cardiac patient, a World War I veteran. He wanted to listen to the reports. "I wish I was there," he said. "You’ve had your...

Dutch Schultz’s memories of the Huertgen

Posted by on Nov 27, 2011 in Blog | 4 comments

Late January 1945, the 82nd was back in battle. Early in February 1945, the division arrived at a scene my father described as resembling Dante’s Inferno – the Huertgen Forest, in the Ardennes along the Belgian-German border. In those dark woods which resembled dark fairy tale scenes of Hansel and Gretel, catastrophic losses had befallen the American Army in November 1944. As dad and his fellow troopers marched through the killing field, the snow was slowly melting and the “Bloody Huertgen” was giving up its dead. Body parts were...

Excerpt from The Hidden Legacy of World War II – Chapter Five – Lost Child   The Hidden Legacy of World War II Chapter 5 LOST CHILD "Over time I realized that my father was not alone in his defeat. There were many other vets like him, emotionally scarred by the “Good War”, who failed to live up to the impossible standards set for men of their era. I was lucky, in fact, to be Dad’s confidant. Most loved ones were kept in the dark. World War II vets are notoriously closemouthed, the stoic product of the Great...

Daughters of D-Day – created in 2005 by Ilene Baker and Carol Schultz Vento

Posted by on Nov 9, 2011 in Blog | 6 comments

  We are the daughters (as well as son, nieces, nephews, and other types of relations or friends) of World War II veterans who served in the European or Pacific theatres and participated in combat. We are looking for other men and women whose fathers (or other family or friends) fought in Europe, in the Pacific campaign, or anywhere during the span of World War II. We’d like to hear their stories.  Our goal is to listen, to tell, to share, and to try to come to know how our those stories are woven into our own and form one...

World War II and the combat soldier

Posted by on Oct 31, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

The Hidden Legacy of World War II is the lack of treatment for the returning combat veteran with “combat fatigue” or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which became an official diagnosis in 1980, after Vietnam. The prevailing diagnoses for veterans of World War II who were traumatized by war were anxiety neurosis and psychoneurotic disorder, based on the Freudian model with the underlying theme that these soldiers must have had some underlying neurotic disorder prior to war, otherwise they would not be suffering from war trauma.
