|Plot Summary of Under Wraps: One Soldier's Hidden Diary of WWII|
|"'Under Wraps' is the diary of Jay Coffman who recorded his fascinating experiences and deep thoughts while serving in the South Pacific throughout World War II. He wrote about the war, combat, letters from home and family, the tropical disease that eventually took his life, and his long distance love affair with the 'girl back home.' Because keeping a diary in combat zones was a court martial offense, Coffman kept his diary notes hidden in his personal effects until the war was over. "
