Bringing Mulligan Home Sgt. Steve Maharidge, like many of his generation, hardly ever talked about the war. After his death, his son Dale, now an adult, began a 12-year quest to understand his father's preoccupation with a certain photo from the war. What had happened during the battle for Okinawa, and why had his father remained silent about his experiences? Full description

Review:

Helen Benedict, author of The Lonely Soldier: The Private War of Women Serving in Iraq and Sand Queen "Through deep and sensitive interviewing, Dale Maharidge has achieved what many have previously thought impossible: he has opened up the "silent generation" of World War Two veterans and enabled them to tell their stories. These veterans, US marines and Japanese who met as enemies in the Pacific, are no mythologized heroes or villains, but flesh-and-blood humans describing the true horror that has always been, and always will be, war. Maharidge enables these survivors to speak of the war with such honesty that they strip away all its glamour, break your heart and win it all at once. Part memoir, part vivid history, part a searing examination of war trauma, Bringing Mulligan Home gives us an entirely fresh look at "The Good War" that may well change our view of it forever." Kirkus "A moving memoir...A powerful narrative of the dark side of American combat in the Pacific theater and the persistence of resulting injuries decades after the war ended." Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Rhodes "Gripping and unforgettable-a son's search for his father in the shattered ruins of the Pacific War" New York Post"A scrupulous and heartfelt analysis of what it was like to be "a cog in the biggest battle in the Pacific." Minneapolis Star Tribune"Mulligan is that rare thing: a book propelled into being by heartfelt urgency and prodigious skill, a mission truly accomplished." Wall Street Journal"Bringing Mulligan Home offers bracing eyewitness and some fine writing." Cleveland Plain Dealer"Unexpectedly uplifting" Huntington News"A wonderful story. The author brings to the art of non-fiction the rhythm and suspense of a tall tale. Masterfully written." Sea Classics Magazine"Wrenching, powerful...This is a reflective work that will prove of great interest to all war veterans, their families, and others interested in them."
