This history of World War Two is told through the correspondence of a Jewish soldier from a small town in North Dakota. It is both a personal and a universal story about a family losing a son in battle. Larry Schlasinger (1922-1944) was valedictorian of his high school class in Streeter, North Dakota, and graduated from the University of North Dakota in 1943. He was a member of Sigma Delta Chi, Phi Beta Sigma, Phi Beta Kappa, Blue Key, and Who's Who Among Students. In addition, he won honors as a marksman in the ROTC. Enlisting in the US Army, Larry became a Staff Sergeant in the Infantry and was sent to France to do intelligence work in preparation for the Normandy invasion. He was wounded in the capture of Cherbourg and died in England. Larry was posthumously awarded the Legion of Merit. His family established an annual journalism award in his memory at the University of North Dakota.
