Synopsis

Frank H. Braunlich, Jr. saw World War II in the South Pacific with a weather eye. This is the story of his intriguing experiences as the war arrived during his third year of college, how he left everything behind to add his skills to the war effort as an Army Air Corps weather forecaster, and how he found so much more in return. Using 90 authentic photographs (the majority taken by Frank himself), the book details with unusual completeness Frank's training, romance, travel, adventure behind the lines in foreign places, witness of battles, life in the occupation forces in Japan, and his return home. It is also the story of the woman who became his wife of 63 years; and of his relationship with the Knights, his best buddies during the Great Depression in the small town of Okmulgee, Oklahoma, and how they helped each other before, during, and after the war. Weather Knight is a tale of what life during the pivotal event of the 20th Century was really like, from the mundane to the thrilling.
