A Boy's Eye View of World War II and Other Reminiscences of Maryland's Eastern Shore - Frank H. Pierce. A warm but extremely accurate account of home front life in a small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore during the War. Written as a first-person account through the eyes of a boy with an exceptional memory and a curiosity for detail, this account is invaluable for the historian and any others with an interest in how things actually were at the time—how gasoline and food rationing worked, what it was like to have a garrison of American Infantry suddenly thrust into the middle of the peaceful and isolated life of a small town on America's east coast, and how the people adjusted to several thousand German prisoners-of-war encamped not five miles distant. Mr. Pierce also examines the isolated and insular nature of Maryland's Eastern Shore, and recounts the closure of this almost classic sociological isolation with the opening of the great Chesapeake Bay Bridge shortly after the War. (1998), 2007, 5˝x8˝, paper, 140 pp.
