Trilogy E-Book 3 – Victory & Homecoming
Book 3, Victory and Homecoming, follows Wilber into new combat in New Guinea just as Norma makes a bold move to readjust her life. The invasion of Luzon in the Philippine Islands follows. It is on the scale of the Normandy invasion but mounted from bases thousands of miles away. There, Wilber is in combat for six months and experiences numerous “special times,” three of which each merit him a Silver Star. (The author’s 1983 visit to Luzon is described in another Interlude.) After the Luzon combat, preparations for the invasion of Japan begin, a move guaranteed to be a bloodbath. The story concludes with Wilber’s voyage to Japan in the occupation force, his return home, his death, and its aftermath.
Based on a rich trove of wartime letters, Wilber’s War trilogy has received the following accolades:
Silver Award: Foreword Reviews (War & Military),
Silver Award: IBPA Benjamin Franklin (Biography),
Finalist Award: National Indie Excellence (Military Non-fiction)
