Summary, etc.:
Sgt. Steve Maharidge, like many of his generation, hardly ever talked about the war. The only sign he<U+2019>d served in it was a single black and white photograph of himself and another soldier tacked to the wall of his basement workshop. After Steve Maharidge<U+2019>s death, his son Dale, now an adult, began a twelve-year quest to understand his father<U+2019>s preoccupation with the photo. What had happened during the battle for Okinawa, and why had his father remained silent about his experiences and the man in the picture, Herman Mulligan? In his search for answers, Maharidge sought out the survivors of Love Company, many of whom had never before spoken so openly and emotionally about what they saw and experienced on Okinawa.
