Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe saga of China, Burma, India -- World War II's forgotten theater -- is as heroic as it is seldom told.Richard Beard, an Army psychologist assigned to the 142nd General Hospital in Calcutta, dealt daily with emotional trauma. In daily letters to Reva, he poured out not only his observations of life in India but also his own longing and passions, and the unfolding drama of war, in painfully exquisite detail tempered with tenderness and humor.In these letters, the couple's devotion to each other in the face of separation and their willingness to see the war through to its end demonstrate once again the dedication of the World War II generation.
