Frank's diary begins on June 6, 1944 when he first learns of the invasion of Europe, D-Day, while stationed in England. He arrives in France on D-day +4. The diary ends with an entry on September 14, 1945, the day he arrives home in Massachusetts. As a chief warrant officer, he was a few miles behind the front line. We follow Lovell as he bears witnesses to some of the most monumental events of the 20th century. Well aware he was living during a period of major historical importance, Lovell believed it was his duty to record these events. The results are the reader is offered a unique perspective into an individual solder's view of his wartime experiences. Included in the diary are Frank Lovell's eyewitness accounts of the 9th Infantry Division cutting off of the Cotentin Peninsula, the Battle of the Hedgerows, Operation Cobra, the Battle for St Lo, the closing of the Falaise Gap, the liberation of Belgium, the Battle of the Hürtgen Forrest, the Battle of the Bulge, the Roer to Rhine River Drive, the Liberation of Nordhausen Concentration Camp, and the post-war Allied Occupation of Europe. Also included are many WWII photos from Lovell's private collection. Work is currently ongoing for future publication of Frank Lovell diary entries from the North Africa and Sicily campaigns of 1942 and 1943.
