Private Lindahl, Citizen Soldier: A narrative from June 1943 to August 1946 by Elder M. Lindahl. (Winter 2001-2002)
Private Lindahl, Citizen Soldier by Elder M. Lindahl opens a window for us into the realities of life in the military service, particularly seen through the perceptive eyes of an eighteen-year-old enlistee. Based on the 250 letters he had written home, the narrative is indebted to a devoted mother who systematically preserved them for posterity.
