Finding Phil: Lost in War and Silence by Paul Levy (Peterborough, NH: Bauhan Publishing, 2016).

NH author Paul Levy was a recent guest on NHPR's The Exchange and will be talking about his book at The Toadstool Bookshop in Milford on Sunday, 12/11/2016 at 2 pm.
Paul Levy was a year old when his Uncle Phil was killed in World War II, and his family, like many, faced their grief with silence. Upon retirement, and seventy years after his uncle’s death, he set out to discover what might still be found about Phil. At every step, research led to unexpected turns, and ultimately revealed a vivid portrait of Phil’s life and, astoundingly, of his death. In the process, the author also gained insights into war, antisemitism, family silences, and heroism, and encountered intriguing and sometimes famous characters who had touched Phil’s life. -- Publisher's blurb.
