Gallagher enlisted in the Army Air Force and a year later was on active duty in the Southwest Pacific theatre as a communications officer. Among the personal belongings he took was a Baldaxette camera. An amateur photographer, Gallagher hoped one day to put together a scrapbook of his overseas tour. The army made no objections to its airmen taking pictures as long as they avoided radar equipment and Americans killed in action. Fifty years later, Gallaghers photographs have been collected in this volume, a highly personal photographic record of Americas war in the Pacific.
