Where Thousands Fell

InWhere Thousands Fell, Fr. William J. Leonard recounts his experiences as a priest-professor who left his books and put on a uniform so that fighting men might not be without the support of religious faith and practice. He tells the story of indoctrination in Chaplain School, of his first awkward beginnings in a stateside camp, of life aboard a transport threatened by enemy submarines, of heat and malarial mosquitoes and incessant rain in a rear-echelon base deep in the jungles of New Guinea, of the bloody beach-head in the Philippines and the immense effort to mount in Manila the assault on the Japanese homeland, of peace at last and a grateful return to civilian life.
