Englishman Lost His American Friend in WWII
Thanks to Jonathan Sandler who mentioned the Stories Behind the Stars project during his recent interview on WW2TV. Mention is at 47:37 point.
Jonathan is the author of the graphic novel about his grandfather Carl Sandler called The English GI: World War II Graphic Memoir of a Yorkshire Schoolboy's Adventures in the United States and Europe. (Available on Amazon).
PFC Sandler had a close friend, John Francis Ebert, who was killed in the war serving together in the 26th Infantry Division. His story was written by Stories Behind the Stars volunteer Hudson Louie. You can read Ebert's story here.
