Appleton Post-Crescent Interview with James Bradley

Link to June 9 Appleton Post-Crescent, "'Flags of Our Fathers' author James Bradley begins researching next book".

Excerpt: As James Bradley tells it, he "continued the story" of the famous photo of the Iwo Jima flag-raising in World War II by writing the best-selling book "Flags of Our Fathers." The book, which also was turned into a movie, told of Bradley's father, John Bradley, who grew up in Appleton, and the five other men who raised the flag.

Bradley went on to write two other best-selling war-related books, "Flyboys" and "The Imperial Cruise." Now, Bradley is in Appleton doing research on what may turn out to be another book that would continue the flag-raisers' story further. He's going to the hometowns of the six men to talk to people about values then and now — how they've changed and what impact they've had on America
