The most important source is the letters he wrote over a 5-year period to his sweetheart, Norma. Jim could not reveal much in his letters about where he was or what he was doing in terms of military action, so I needed to do that for him. Through careful research and stitching together the evidence from his letters and stories I have attempted to tell that part of Jim's story"-- Preface.
