    schema:description ""Pete Lynn was thirty-three years old and married with children when he received a draft notice in March, 1944. Lynn worked in a textile mill, was raising a family, and never expected to be drafted. But when the notice arrived, like so many others, he left home and family to do his duty. By the end of the month, he was training in Texas. By September, he was serving with the 28th Infantry Division in Europe. By November, he was dead. In The lost soldier, a new, unique, and revealing look at World War II, Chris Hartley reconstructs the war of one American soldier, the war of his family back home, and the war of many thousands of GIs and their families in this century-defining conflict."--Dust jacket flap."@en ;
