A Battlefield Promotion

My father was a quiet, unassuming person. He grew up on a farm in a small rural community (Monroeville, Indiana), and served in the U.S. Army during World War II. He was stationed in New Guinea and spent time in Australia where he met and married my mother and where I was born. When I returned to Australia many years later as an adult, I met many people who had known my father and who respected and admired him. I visited the places he had been and felt a closeness to him that I had not felt before. My father died while I was in Australia and I was never able to share these experiences with him in person.

That he was able to produce this book is amazing to his family and something to be admired. It was with this thought in mind that I undertook the task of retyping and editing his manuscript, and to have it published in his memory, in a form that could be enjoyed by his family and friends.

About the author:

The author grew up on a farm in a small rural community (Monroeville, Indiana), and served in the U.S. Army during World War II. He was stationed in New Guinea and spent time in Australia where he met and married my mother. My father told his family that one night he had a dream and awoke the next day, sat down at the typewriter, and began writing this book. It is obvious that his experiences in the war were a great influence in his life.
