Lundy applied his drawing skills to what was around him—training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina; forced marches; men at rest; New York harbor; aboard ship in the Atlantic crossing; Cherbourg harbor; and French villages. Though Lundy original enlisted in the Army Special Training Program, by 1944 the Army needed reinforcements, and Lundy and his company were thrown into the infantry. Vivid portraits of fellow soldiers and frontline scenes also fill the pages. In 2010, Victor Lundy looked through the sketchbook images with Library staff and commented on the drawings and his experience in the war. The full audio and a transcript are available through the Veterans History Project (see Related Resources).
Below is a visual index to the eight volumes of sketchbooks that enables researchers to view the sketchbooks and their contents in sequence. (Note: The numbering scheme for the sketchbooks reflects those received by the Library of Congress and does not take into account any sketchbooks that were apparently created but that are not extant.) Each entry features a representative image and quotation as Lundy sketches his way from May to November. The entries list each sketchbook title, volume number, and a link to the online images, which will display in page number sequence.
