“This is the remarkable story of my father, Herbert Henry Miller, who was drafted into the army in August 1942.” So begins this book about an ordinary man thrust into extraordinary circumstances during World War II. The writer is Herbert Miller’s son, Robert, who discovered his father’s Red Cross war diary at the back of a drawer in the weeks following his 1994 death.
