Description
A young accountant from Canton, Ohio, Frank Kessler was drafted and assigned to an Army Signal Corps unit in World War II, where he photographed the war in Europe following the Allied invasion of Normandy. In 1945 he returned home with hundreds of photographs, which remained stored away until after his death in 1990, when his brother Lee found them and, recognizing their importance, carefully catalogued them. The late novelist Tony Hillerman, himself a decorated veteran, sets these remarkable photos in context. "When I saw Frank Kessler's photographs I was struck by how different they were from the movie-camera views I see on television," writes Hillerman. "No public relations pictures here, intended to glorify battle and rally support. These were up-close snapshots of the dirty, damp, and disheveled men in the rifle companies and tank units. It was the war as they endured it, as they struggled through it from the beaches of France to the heart of Germany and finally won it."
