Come hear Hingham author John Happ share a fascinating piece of his father's - and our country's - history. "An aged and glossy leather briefcase was discovered when our family house was sold. My father had meticulously collected his military documents, private letters, and souvenirs, and packed them away in his pilot’s navigation case." One document was an article describing a massive typhoon in New Guinea causing “horror and tragedy” and resulting in an incredible loss of men and aircraft. "But what was my father, or any American, doing in New Guinea, of all places?" The papers document an amazing story of war in the Pacific, from Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Midway Island, and Iwo Jima, up to the catastrophes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
