Today we are looking at the Letters From War, a Washington Post podcast. 

It was just two years ago today my blog post was on Remembering Pearl Harbor on the 75th Anniversary.  

The subtitle I’m seeing for Letters From War is: “Hundreds of letters, written between brothers fighting in the Pacific during World War II. Almost one a day, for every day of the war.”  

For today’s blog post, the best summary I’m seeing about it for sharing about the Letters From War, a Washington Post podcast is to include the three-part tweet by Dan Lamothe today.

About the Letters From War, a Washington Post podcast

My sincere thanks to Dan Lamothe for tweeting about the Letters From War, a Washington Post podcast today.

In conclusion, you are really going to want to spend some time going through the beautiful job they’ve done with organizing the letters and the eight podcast episodes for them.

On this solemn occasion of the 77th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, I’m closing not with my usual closing, but instead with revered silence.

“All these years later, we remember today the attack on Pearl Harbor, which killed more than 2,400 and pulled the U.S. into World War II. Last year, published a labor of love in which we recreated the lives of four brothers at war. 1/”

We did so relying on hundreds of letters they wrote to each other, including some from far-flung battlefields like Tulagi. We also relied on the help of historians and a distant surviving relative. 2/

“One result was the podcast, expertly assembled with work from , and . We were fortunate to be recognized months later by the for the project. Check the podcast out here! 3/3″
