The Good War: An Oral History of World War II

by

The Good War: An Oral History of World War II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The Good War”, for which Studs Terkel won the Pulitzer Prize, is a testament not only to the experience of war but to the extraordinary skill of Terkel as interviewer. As always, his subjects are open and unrelenting in their analyses of themselves and their experiences, producing what People magazine has called “a splendid epic history of World War II.” With this volume Terkel expanded his scope to the global and the historical, and the result is a masterpiece of oral history.

Synopsis:

The first trade paperback edition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book with a new Preface by the author. "As in "Hard Times" and "Working", this master interviewer again creates a turbulent epic of human experience by quoting the words of those who lived it. . . . A vivid resurrection of a lost time".--"Newsday".
