Description

Will Clover discusses his time in radio communications for the U.S. Navy during World War Two. He recalls being aboard the USS Meredith in 1942, which was sunk about 90 miles away from Guadalcanal, and the ensuing three days he spent on a raft while men around him died. Clover discusses Tokyo Rose, saying the servicemen knew the programming was propaganda designed to disillusion them.
