A "Written" Review

Debbie White of Different Time, Different Place Book Reviews is the latest to give her take on Written on the Knee: A Diary from the Greek-Italian Front of WWII edited and translated by Helen Electrie Lindsay. Debbie writes:

"Written on the Knee is a war diary with related letters, photos, and maps included. There are also sections giving a brief history of the time before, during, and after the diary to put the diary in context. It's an interesting, personal look at what WWII was like on Greek-Italian front. Since it's a diary, he often writes a lot about some aspects (like the travel, finding food, finding ways to send letters, interpersonal relations, air raids) and less on others (actual patients and wounds treated and the fighting going on)."
