Authors talked about two different men whose experiences in World War II were extraordinary, but not well-known. Robert Gillette talked about his book The Virginia Plan: William B. Thalhimer and a Rescue from Nazi Germany. Then Elliot Carlson talked about his book Joe Rochefort’s War: The Odyssey of the Codebreaker Who Outwitted Yamamoto at Midway. Both authors used slides during their presentations. After the presentations they both responded to questions from members of the audience.

“World War II: Hidden Heroes of the War” was a program of the Virginia Festival of the Book which was held in the Charlottesville City Council Chambers. close
