Book description: "This volume presents three hundred and eighty six letters of second generation Hungarian American (referred to as "American Hungarian, " meaning American of Hungarian origin) soldiers in World War II, sent from US army bases in the States, Europe and the Far East, and addressed to Rev. Andrew Kosa (Kósa András), the Minister of the Hungarian Reformed Church in Brunswick, New Jersey. This epistolary corpus exemplifies the significance of publishing archival material for learning about a period, a group in the American multi - culture, immigration, language and translation issues, and about letters as a genre of documentary writing. The readers of this volume can approach these topics thanks to the volumes bilingual Introduction and name and subject indexes, as well as due to the preservation of the letters original language (three hundred and fifty letters are written in English and thirty six in Hungarian), with their authenticity kept intact (including highlighted errors), and a rich section of photos, ads and samples of dozens of handwritten letters.
