View Full Description

Commissioned as an Army officer in 1917, Colonel Edwin Turner Bowden, Sr., was already a seasoned soldier by the time of his service in North Africa and the European Theater during World War II. Though no stranger to long periods of separation from his wife, Alli, his letters convey his longing for her, particularly as the war drags on. He offers little commentary on his war experiences beyond poetic descriptions of his accommodations, the French people he meets, and the landscape surrounding him, his explorations of which seem to provide solace: "I love to wander through the streets in the dusk and watch the panorama of ancient life and customs" (letter to Alli, 5/23/1943). The uncertainty of war is never far off; he tells Alli that his nightly dreams of her are good omens, and signs that he will return home safely.
