And I Still Hate the Army
Elliott H. Wells kept a journal of his life from his induction into the U.S. Army National Guard in New Hampshire to his country’s declaration of war to the Axis powers in 1941.
His grandson, Matthew Craig, deciphered his handwriting, and resurrected this journal from decades of intentional interment. Mr. Craig preserved all of Mr. Wells’ entries and provided insight into some of the expressions and references to daily military life of that era. He also furnished context, based on his research in a number of sources, regarding the status of military operations during the remaining period of Mr. Wells’ service in Australia and New Guinea.
Mr. Wells’ silence during the period of war service may be more eloquent than his written account of his activities leading up to the war. Mr. Craig’s enormous affection for his grandfather underlies these pages, while not being described in detail.
