Soldier's Coming of Age Story Offers Firsthand Personal Account of WWII

June 14, 2017



A new book authored by a World War II soldier, is scheduled for release to the public on June 18, 2017.   Journals of War: Coming of Age with the 104th Infantry During World War II is a comprehensive firsthand account of pre- to post-World War II, spanning the civilian and military experiences of E. J. McCully.  Compiled from six journals, the book includes the demanding training McCully underwent in Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning, his subsequent commission as an officer, and assignment to Camp Adair, Oregon. It covers his maneuvers in the Oregon desert and the California-Arizona Maneuver Area (CAMA) as well as his tenure at Camp Carson in Colorado.  The book climaxes with McCully’s extraordinary accomplishments as a Regimental Personnel Officer in World War II and his eventual promotion to Captain in the 415th Regiment of the 104th Infantry Division (Timberwolves). 


Throughout the narrative, readers are offered a privileged glimpse into McCully’s private thoughts, reflections, and feelings regarding his personal and professional relationships, military training and career, and purpose in life.


Impeccably organized with a brief synopsis before each section, Journals of War invites readers to leisurely peruse selective sections or to read the book from cover to cover.
