Sandy Odhner sent letters to his family back in Pennsylvania, giving a humorous and poignant insight into the day to day life of an Army Air Corps bombardier in the South Pacific. Odhner, an aspiring commercial artist, illustrated his letters with a series of cartoons depicting the antics and rigors of camp life in the jungle, interrupted by some of the most important and dramatic air battles of WWII.Slightly Censored: Letters Home from the Pacific Theater tells a story of a young man barely out of high school, thrown into combat half a world away, surviving loneliness, and both boredom and mortal peril, until his return home the following year as a highly decorated veteran.

The casual, tongue-in-cheek style of the letters, together with the comical cartoons, are in deep contrast with the mortal danger and urgency of aerial combat. The story is valuable for both its reflection of a crucial historical moment, as well as for its lively depiction of the remarkable character of these youths in uniform, who put everything on the line to defend their country and their loved ones.

The result is a gripping story that will keep the reader engaged from the first flight out past the Golden Gate Bridge, to the touching sign-off of the last letter, homeward bound.
