Sketchbook of a WWII soldier

I don’t usually like a lot of the click bait that pops up on my Facebook feed, but this was really interesting.

During his time on the front lines of France in WWII, Victor Lundy, a 21-year old architecture student from New York sketched in vivid detail his surroundings and the soldiers he fought with.


His work helps illustrate the horrors of war and gives us insight into what it would have been like fighting as a young soldier at the time.

Injured in 1944, Victor (now 92) went on to enjoy a successful career in architecture. He donated his sketchbooks to the Library of Congress and you can see the full archive here.
