Sketches from a World War II Soldier

Sketches from a World War II Soldier

Like yesterday's post, I intended to put these on the Daily Amazing page, but the more I looked at them, the more I decided to post them here instead. Because, truly, I couldn't stop looking at them. They are sketches  done during World War II by a soldier named Victor Alfred Lundy and are digitized at the Library of Congress.  There are hundreds of sketches he made. The black and white ones above are from earlier sketchbooks (the cover of one included here), and toward the end of the war, they became more detailed and often in color. It's worth a trip to see them. The Library of Congress makes all their digital files available in several formats for downloading and printing. Just in case you haven't discovered that enormous image source for yourself. And, I did post another Daily Amazing....
