My Buddy

Regular price $79.99

During World War II, to help bolster troops against the horrors of combat, commanders encouraged them to form tight buddy relationships for emotional support. Many war buddies, together every moment, and depending on each other to survive, formed intimate friendships. The full extent of nude horseplay among men during World War II can't be known, as cameras were rare and film hard to process, but some men did document their bonding in small, anonymous photos. This collection includes soldiers and sailors from Australia, England, France, Italy, Poland, Russia, and the USA. Text in English, French, and German
