 Beast of Bengal

by Elaine Pinkerton

As World War II rages in the Pacific, U.S. and British soldiers fight their own battles in the steamy jungles of Burma. But in an American military hospital in Calcutta, something is terribly amiss. Army psychologist Richard Benet refuses to acknowledge that his commanding officer, Colonel James “Mac” McDermott, is smuggling drugs out of the hospital to support not only an opium addiction but also the Indian Independence Movement. Only after the psychologist is kidnapped by Indian insurgents and imprisoned with a man-eating Bengal guard tiger does he admit the ugly truth. Calcutta’s U. S. Army base is under siege. Only Benet can save the base hospital. First, however, he must escape from Calcutta’s underground prison.

This historical fiction features the internecine battles for Indian independence between those advocating the violent removal of Westerners and those loyal to Mohandas Gandhi.

From Calcutta With Love

by Elaine Pinkerton

The heroic saga of China Burma India, World War II’s forgotten theater is seldom told. CBI ground troops were charged with the Herculean labor of building the Ledo Road, a crucial link between India and China. Merrill’s Marauders hacked through Burma’s jungles to ensure that munitions were supplied to the Chinese. They braved the worst weather and diseases in the world. Conditions sometimes drove men to madness.

The World War II letters to home written by Lt. Richard Beard, an Army psychologist assigned to the 142nd General Hospital in Calcutta give CBI history a human voice. Beard spent 18 months dealing with emotional trauma of the culturally shocked, battle traumatized and emotionally burned-out victims of India and World War II. A pillar to the men he served, Beard was an astute listener and observer, pleased to be serving his country. His own pillar was his wife Rita, half a world away in Findlay, Ohio. Inspired by deep love and longing, Beard’s epistles rank with the best of love letters written during World War II. The original letters of both Richard and Reva Beard are archived in the History Museum of the Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
