Sugarman left for World War II Europe with two desires:
to capture his experiences in art work and to communicate
in words to his new bride, June, what the art work couldn’t
tell. Fortunately, June saved everything her husband mailed
back: his visual impressions of wartime England and D-Day,
and his letters, the reflections of a young man in love for
the first time and facing the possibility that he might never
see his sweetheart again. It is a story familiar from so many
wars, but when Sugarman tells it, it somehow seems brand new.
