This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

“From Philadelphia to the Battle of Bulge” describes one pair of newlyweds from Philadelphia as they cope with separation during World War Two. Personal correspondence and photographs demonstrate how the conflict affects U.S. Army, 28th Infantryman, Pvt. John “Lefty” Zagarella and his young bride Jeanne from 1941 to 1945. This compilation of letters, postcards and v-mails depicts their lives: his during training at Army camps in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Louisiana and Florida, and then later while serving in the European Theatre of Operations; and hers, as she waited anxiously at home; both of them contemplating their future together. That future was not to be. John Zagarella perished in the vicinity of Wiltz, Luxembourg during the Battle of the Bulge. Jeanne preserved and treasured her collection of letters for nearly seven decades; letters that reveal an extraordinary amount of courage, honor, sacrifice and love among two ordinary Americans, nurtured as a matter of course, even during the most trying of historical circumstances.
