Inhaltsangabe: On June 6, 1944, Ugo Giannini landed on Omaha Beach at H+70 minutes as one of a platoon of military police assigned to the 29th Division. Ugo's team was to control the incoming traffic. There were thirty-seven men in his platoon; they were decimated in the first ten minutes. Six men got to the beach. Someone told Ugo that he was needed on the bluff above. He climbed the Vierville Draw, jumped into a crater made by naval bombardment, and spent that day and part of the next day as an eyewitness to the greatest invasion ever conceived by the military. Remarkably, he began to draw. These are the only drawings made that historic day, as well as the next. This book is the story of one man, in the context of World War II; a man who was a poet, an artist, and had the strength of a boxer. A civilian used to the comforts and hysteria of an immigrant Italian family, in love with his childhood sweetheart, plunged into the hell of war. Presented here are the sketches from that historic day and the days that immediately followed. Drawn in pencil and pen, in a gritty, realist style, the images show heavily burdened infantrymen trying to stay afloat in the seawater, crawling on the beach or dead among the ruins of a bombed-out village. Interwoven with letters home written by a young man to his family and his girlfriend, the words and images portray the horror of war in a deep and personal way. The abstract paintings that appear at the end of the book provide a powerful statement, composed years after the initial experience, about the complete disintegration, both physical and spiritual, caused by war.

Über den Autor:

Born in Newark, New Jersey in 1919, Ugo Giannini was the son of an opera singer and a tailor. After graduating from high school, he enrolled as a student in the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts. Founded in 1882 as the Fawcett Art School, it was one of the outstanding art schools in America in the middle decades of the twentieth century. Giannini later went on to study at the National Academy of Design in New York. World War II interrupted his studies, but upon his return from Europe he continued his studies at the Art Students League in New York. He later studied in Paris with Fernand Leger where he was exposed to the modernist currents of the first half of the twentieth century, most notably Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism and he abandoned the realist style in which he had been working until that point. When he returned stateside, Giannini took a studio in East Orange, New Jersey where he continued to experiment with colors and forms. After marrying Maxine Yellin, a classical pianist, in 1955, he secured a teaching post at Caldwell College in New Jersey. More interested in creating and teaching than in promoting his career, he lived a quiet life in West Orange, together with his wife and two children. He produced an impressive oeuvre in a variety of media?painting, gouache, pastel, drawing and collage. Upon the artist?s death in 1993, his heirs found in his modest studio a large and impressive body of work, exposing a heart deeply affected by his experience at war.
