About the Book:
“Dearest Mama,” begins a letter written by Army Sgt. James Boisseau Bailey on August 8, 1944, “I know that you have begun to think that I have forgotten you but that will never happen.”
Sent from New Guinea during World War II to his mother, Bailey’s letters were recently discovered in an antique shop by James Breig. Inspired by them, he began to search between their lines for telltale clues to the soldier’s entire life..
The new book, “Searching for Sergeant Bailey: Saluting an Ordinary Soldier of World War II,” takes this unique perspective and proves there are other kinds of heroes: the unnoticed millions who deserve to be saluted because they did their duty, regardless of what it was, well and faithfully.
“If the stories are allowed to fade,” writes Breig, “so, too, will the men and women who lived them. So, too, will the history they made.”
