This WordPress.com site is Pacific War era information
Category Archives: Introduction
During my project of transposing my father’s scrapbook into my computer to preserve it, my research into the 11th Airborne, the Pacific War and the state of the world during that era grabbed my interest. I amassed a nice size manuscript with bibliography. And I do not appear to be alone in this interest.
I discovered a multitude of forums and websites dedicated to that era and people searching frantically for any information on their relatives.
In the posts to follow I will include not just the photographs, information and portions of letters (if not all) from the scrapbook, but the political aspects of the past that brought the world to such an explosive state. I will make every attempt to only post the facts. Should I find that I wish to make my own opinions on a matter, I will state it as so.
I sincerely hope you not only enjoy this site, but also locate information that is helpful.
