Waldo Schumaker was an accomplished artist. He captured all the details of Army life from Basic Training to Liberty Ship travel, Infantry action, and the Army of Occupation in Germany. His drawings provide details that bring this period of history to life. The exchange of letters, his artwork and the stories recorded by their son John bring back to life a time when the world was at war and letters were the most common way to communicate. Hopes and dreams hung in the balance for weeks as mail crossed the Atlantic. Newspaper and newsreel accounts of the progress of the war caused hopes to rise and fall for loved ones overseas. And prayers were a constant part of life for those at war and at home. This book brings history to life through his father's drawings and letters. World War II is seen in a way that brings back memories to veterans and enlightens all that love history.
