May 16 Tuesday Forum LOCAL MAINE AUTHOR!


Wilber’s War chronicles the story of two ordinary Americans from Bangor, Wilber and Norma Bradt, during an extraordinary time, World War II. It offers fresh insight—deeply personal—into the historic conflict as it was fought by Bangor’s 152nd Field Artillery in the Pacific theater and by a family on the home front. It is an epic tale of duty, heroism, love, infidelity, and the tragedy of suicide. Based on a rich trove of wartime letters, Wilber’s War (abridged) is thoughtfully condensed by the author, from his trilogy of the same name.
Author Hale Bradt, Wilber and Norma’s son, shares his parents’ stories with insight, compassion, and a wealth of carefully selected images that bring their experiences to life. Visiting (in the 1980s) the battlefields where his father fought, Bradt adds another uniquely American voice to this rich story: that of a son seeking to unravel the tangled threads of his family’s legacy.
