Original World War II, Lt. Commanders personal diary that belonged to Lt. Commander Herbert Goebert USNR, while on active military duty. This diary is in excellent intact condition. Entries range throughout 1943 and 1944. Here are some of the entries: writing of D-Day - he writes on Monday, June 5th, 1944 23:30 hrs. "News of invasion, in London 6:30 A.M. 6/6, have a happy group around radio. 2 letters looks formidable in date. This invasion means beginning of end, but a long way yet". Tuesday, February 22, 1944: "Worst (unable to read) yet. 120 - 125 per hour. I was blown off feet onto fanny. Two huts gone. Aided corpman securing gear. (Von +I) Fires all out for (unable to read), plenty cold. Tempted to pack my gear. Lights all on. No worry about surprise attack tonight". Monday, April 10, 1944: (Mentions the Sullivans). Friday, April 21, 1944 23:30 hrs: "Just finished 56 hr. duty without sleep. Everything is OK. Can't tell what happened. So tired I need sleeping tablet. Have been recomended as doing an excellent job. So I had a cutting good time. Had 2 letters 4/10 + 4/11". June 15, 1944: (Speaks of B-29's over Japan). August 24, 1943/44: (Speaks of having dinner with the Presidents physician). Friday, December 31, 1943: " Seems like wishful thinking to think of peace next year! So much to be done. Lets hope we're wrong". Many other interesting entries. By reading this diary it would seem that Lt. Commander Goebert was transfered from base to base. He writes of being homesick and how his son is a year and a half older since he last seen him. Lt Commander Goebert was a surgeon and he writes of many of the cases that he performed, "bullet in brain" and "epidemic of amputations" and this is just to name a few.
