That’s what John told me a few times when I visited him on Saturday afternoon.
Who cares? I do and a whole lot more people do. More and more people are writing about WWII than ever before.
I call this another revolution just like Gutenberg’s invention.
People are now sharing on the Internet little known facts about WWII. The daughter of a paratrooper in the Pacific. The nephew of a Japanese soldier killed in 1944, the nephew of a tail gunner on a B-25 in the Pacific. The grandniece of Arthur James Horrell who wanted to know how her granduncle died. The granddaughter of Paul Émile Piché who died in the plane with Arthur Horrell also wanted to know. Leslie Birket Foster’s daughter who shared her father’s memoirs. The list goes on and on.
More and more people care about what went on during WWII. I started writing about WWII in August 2009, and I don’t believe I will ever stop writing…because I care.
127 Wing Intelligence Section
Everything John shared has its own history like these pictures.
Intelligence Section trailer
Excerpt from the ebook.
My duties consisted of typing the activities reports submitted by the Wing pilots reporting on the previous day’s sorties over the enemy lines. We were three clerks in that small trailer connected to a canvass cover joining our office trailer to an aircrew briefing area and the Wing Commander’s office, the one and only Johnny Johnson who was to become the Spitfire pilot with the most kills during World War II.
