View Full Description

John Enman's memoirs of his service in World War II read more like travelogues. His assignment, to secure and process aerial photographs in the China-Burma-India Theater, took him to India. He spent 18 months there, and though he didn't witness combat first-hand, he was privy to another fierce battle, the political struggle over the future of China involving Chiang Kai-Shek and General Joseph Stilwell.
