This Business of Fighting: Putting a Human Face on WW II

November 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

“This Business of Fighting,” is a live performance story, based on Tony Pritchard’s letters to his parents in Rhode Island between his sailing for Europe in February 1944 and Germany’s surrender about fifteen months later. You will hear a young man wonder how he will respond to his first combat, describe crawling through the freezing, snow-covered woods of the Ardennes during the Battle of the Bulge, crowds of released forced laborers wandering the roads of Germany as the Nazi regime was collapsing, and women desperately trying to preserve their burning homes as the tide of battle washes over them. The material for this performance was recovered from Tony’s footlocker after his death by his son Arnie Pritchard. Arnie now presents the incredible content of these letter and documents to us.

No Charge. RSVP online, at the library or by calling: (860) 584-7787 x 3.
