An amazing collection of World War Two V-Mails created by artist and author Harry E. Chrisman during his service in the Pacific Theatre of Operations from 1943-45.

Chrisman, who went on to become a newspaper man and a prolific author/editor of more than 14 books about life in the Old West, had a talent for capturing his war-time experiences in funny and often poignant cartoon illustrations.

You are my Sunshine

Volume Two features 106 V-Mails that Harry sent primarily to his wife, Catherine—an Army WAC (Women’s Army Corps) stationed Stateside. The collection offers Harry’s humorous and occasionally sardonic take on Army life and its effect on love, romance and marriage.
