For the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program's Spring 2013 Intern Class. This podcast focuses on two World War II veterans: Conrad Alberty and John Bumgarner, who served the U.S. military in the Pacific Theatre. Both were eventually captured by the Japanese and spent time as prisoners of war. In addition to their recollection of their service, they discuss how the conflict in Europe overshadowed the Pacific, and how the intense and violent nature of the Pacific Theatre is still widely unknown today. Edited by Jordan Vaal and Ilija Zdravkovic.
