Summary:Thoburn H. "Toby" Wiant was a fighter from an early age, and words were his weapons of choice. During World War II, he fought to scoop stories from rival reporters on the front lines as an Associated Press war correspondent. In chronicling the war from the China-Burma-India and European theaters of operation, he skillfully reported the battles of an all-too-real war while often in personal peril. In letters to his parents he revealed his personal reactions to the war, elaborating on the backstories behind his officially filed newspaper articles and his frustrations over wartime censorship. In this remarkable book, his daughter brings together Wiant's printed articles and his private letters. With her aid, we view the war through his eyes as we watch a scrappy boy grow into manhood and an eager cub reporter develop into a seasoned war correspondent.Following in her father's footsteps, Susan E. Wiant is a freelance copywriter and editor. She has been a communications specialist, educator, and journalist and has reported the news for several mid- and large-market newspapers.
