Episode 4 - 1943-1944: Battles | LETTERS FROM WAR podcast | The Washington Post
In this episode: Frank has seen his first combat, as Ralph and John prepare for their own deployments. Facing war has the brothers engaged in intense battles -- both physical and mental. About LETTERS FROM WAR: Hundreds of letters, written between brothers fighting in the Pacific during World War II. Almost one a day, for every day of the war. In this podcast, you’ll hear the story of these brothers — the Eyde brothers — and of World War II, as told through their letters, in their own words. Bringing the letters to life are modern U.S. military veterans. At key moments in the story, we’ll talk to them about how these letters compare to their own experiences — what’s universal about war and what’s changed. And why everyone who picks up these letters feels like the Eyde brothers become a part of their family. This podcast is hosted by Dan Lamothe and produced by Carol Alderman, along with Julie Vitkovskaya and Jessica Stahl. Additional contributions from Ashleigh Joplin, Dalton Bennett and Bridget Reed Morawski. Logo images: Bill O’Leary, Matt McClain and Ricky Carioti. Voice actors: Michael Ball, Zachary Burgart, Jeff Chiang, Brendan Wentz and Rachel Zeigler.
