Dale Maharidge - Bringing Mulligan Home


In Bringing Mulligan Home: The Other Side of the Good War ($26.99), Dale Maharidge delivers the World War II story that has been impossible to get for more than half a century. Through affecting narration, he weaves together the stories of twelve members of Love Company—six of whom were present when Mulligan was killed—about what really happened overseas. And through these stories, he finds significant clues as to who Mulligan was, how he died, and why his father was unable to let his memory go. The quest answered the mystery of Steve Maharidge’s raging fits—Dale learned how blast concussions most likely damaged his father’s brain. What once began as an obsession with a photograph inevitably led to a much more dramatic and greater discovery: an understanding of the war.

Dale Maharidge has been teaching at the Columbia Journalism School since 2001; before that, he was a visiting professor at Stanford University for ten years and spent fifteen years as a newspaperman.  Several of his books are illustrated with the work of photographer Michael S. Williamson. The first book, Journey to Nowhere: The Saga of the New Underclass, later inspired Bruce Springsteen to write two songs. His second book, And Their Children After Them, won the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction in 1990.
