MELBOURNE TO MANILA
by Ovid Di Fiore

Exciting, adventurous, honest, real life, personal, exotic

All of the above describe the true to life narrative of a WW2 Army Signal Corps photographer from the day of his induction until his discharge 4 years later. 39 months of which were spent in Australia, New Guinea and the Philippines.

Told in the form of substantial excerpts from 150 actual letters written during those years, and illustrated by over 25 photos, the story is personal, honest, detailed and highlighted by close contact with leading military and civilian personalities, Hollywood celebrities and personal emissaries of the president. It includes day by day details and reflections of the author's activities, traversing 42,000 miles from eastern United States across the Pacific and related movements from Melbourne to Manila.

It will have wide appeal, mainly to veterans and their families but also to historians, educators, military groups, museums and those fascinated by the events that took place during that period in our history.
