Wilber’s War (trilogy), Boxed Set, Limited First Edition, hardcovers




Wilber’s War (trilogy): An American Famiy’s Journey through World War II  (boxed set, hardcovers, ISBN 978-0-9908544-0-1; also E-books), is a well edited collection of some 700  letters from the South Pacific during World War II, providing insight into that combat from the perspective of an artilleryman of the US Army.

The work  chronicles the story of two ordinary Americans, Wilber and Norma Bradt, during an extraordinary time, World War II. It offers fresh insight—on a deeply personal level—into the historic conflict as it was fought by the U.S. Army in the Solomon Islands, New Guinea, and The Philippines and by a family on the home front. It is an epic tale of duty, heroism, love, infidelity, and the tragedy of suicide.

The work offers a detailed and nuanced view into the complexities faced by one family and by U.S. society as a whole when it ships soldiers off to war and asks loved ones to forge new lives on the home front.

The Wilber’s War (trilogy) is an expanded version of the Wilber story for the reader or  researcher who wishes to more fully immerse himself or herself in the Pacific War and its ramifications on the home front.
