21-Yr-Old WWII Soldier Sketches Daily Life On Frontlines, 70 Yrs Later His Journal Reveals Incredible Snapshot Of War.

When Lundy first enrolled in the Army Special Training Program, he was studying architecture in New York and hoped to put his skills to use rebuilding post-war Europe. He didn’t expect to be put in the infantry, but when he found himself on the front lines in France he continued to sketch; “drawing is sort of synonymous with thinking,” says Lundy, now 92. His breathtaking war sketches– through the eyes of a young solider– leave us in awe.
