Arnie Pritchard inherited the WWII Army footlocker of his father, Anton Pritchard and discovered hundreds of letters and family papers from Anton’s service and in the United Nations’ refugee program in postwar Europe. From these letters Arnie created a story focused on Anton’s time in the front lines. It portrays a young man dealing with: raw fear to his role as a leader to his exposure to a world wider and more brutal than he had known.
Arnie Pritchard has been storytelling since 1997; folk tales, classic literature and personal experience stories. Arnie has a Ph.D. in history from Yale and is the author of a book on Elizabethan England.
