Letter from Ben Barr about the war situation

24-May-44 - Elliott Epstein Collection

Thank you to private collection of Barr family for the photo
Note: Ben Barr’s letter from England, dated May 24, 1944, less than two weeks before Operation Overlord was launched, described “everything” as “nice and quiet for a while.” Military secrecy would have prohibited him from disclosing any information about preparations for the upcoming invasion of Europe
