Last week I mentioned that I had seen mention of a new book called “Radioman” in the monthly K9YA pdf magazine on line. In fact I ordered the book from Amazon and read it here on Saturday. From a radio perspective it didn’t detail radio nits and bits as I had imagined but it did in fact give me another detailed window into life in the nineteen forties and before. History placed this man in some very unique places during WWII and his tale is well worth the read. From CCC Camps prior to the war, through a fortuitous assignment to Pearl Harbor just before war broke out onward to the Battle of the Coral Sea and later through the end of WWII this tome is well written and offers a viewpoint of those people that came from a different time. I’m a bit of a history nut anyway but IMHO this one is well worth the trouble one would go to to find it.
Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG
