With Susan Hadler, a psychologist and war orphan herself, Mix conducted interviews of these war orphans . As a collection of essays and interviews of American World War Two orphans, LOST IN THE VICTORY paints a broad and intense picture of a narrow and lonely subject.
One of the most striking things about these narratives is the conspiracy of silence. Most told of growing up feeling ashamed and embarrassed that they had no father. With each chapter, the sense of loss grows; not just the loss of a fine American to battle, but the loss of a child's identity.
The voices in this book belong to sons and daughters who for half a century have seldom spoken of their fathers or of their own lives after the deaths of their fathers. Memories revealed through interviews, letters, family histories and remembrances are remarkable for their honesty and quiet courage. Over 14 million journal, magazine, and newspaper articles.
Ann Bennett Mix, founder and director of the American WWII Orphans Network in Bellingham, Washington, is the author of Touchstones: A Guide to Records, Rights, and Resources for the Next of Kin of American World War II Casualties. Библиографические данные.

Mix and Hadler began to interview war orphans, who nearly all reported having felt the awkwardness with which America treated the subject of their fathers
