Notes

Summary:
When Yorkunas was stationed on the Marianas Islands in 1944, military censors believed coded messages could be contained inside his letters home to his wife. This led him to start “Wish You Were Here,” a daily journal in which he documented his life on Saipan and Guam with elaborate sketches and short prose descriptions. ( English )
