Back in October we mentioned Wojtek, the bear soldier. We mentioned a couple of great books about him but a friend of the blog posted a comment letting us know there’s a new bear in town . . . historical novel version of the story. And we thought, Pearl Harbor Day . . . why not share a WWII story?
This one features many stories from ab old army buddy of Wojtek, so definitely worth having. This recent historical novel called `Private Wojtek Soldier Bear’ is by Krystyna Mikula- Deegan whose uncle served with Wojtek’s own Artillery Company during WW2. The story is written from this soldier’s point of view.
