The Green Box is a poignantly told story of an ordinary man called to war as rediscovered by a son through a handful of telegrams, letters and other clues. Jim Kurtz' efforts to doggedly search the archives and the memories of other airmen in WWII is captivating. He has shown us how a man, his father, answered the call to duty, carried out bombing missions in service to his country and suffered the inhumane conditions of a German POW. The mystery of the green box is unraveled by the determination of a loving son.
