In 1978 Paul Levy received a package sent with materials held by Phil’s wife Barbara. It included Phil’s purple heart and diary he kept from invasion in Southern France. The family had never spoken of it. Finding Phil traces Paul Levy’s search for his Uncle Phil, killed 70 years earlier in World War II. Phil was a young tank platoon commander who braved the frigid winter of 1944-45 as allied troops advanced against an increasingly desperate Hitler, and died in France only months before the war ended.
At once a mystery, a love story, a soldier’s tale, and a reflection, Finding Phil ponders family silences, peace and the war, the nature of heroism, the complexity of anti-Semitism, and the growing love of a nephew for an uncle he never knew."
