Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this beautiful American family album, history comes alive and is preserved in people's own words, through stories, reflections, and memorabilia of World War II, and through photographs and time lines that commemorate important dates and events. An Army Air Corps veteran who enlisted in 1941 at age seventeen writes to describe the Bataan Death March. Other members of the greatest generation describe their war ?- in such historic episodes as Guadalcanal, the D-Day invasion, the Battle of the Bulge, and Midway — as well as their life on the home front. Starting with the Depression and Pearl Harbor, moving on through the war in Europe, in the Pacific, and at home, this unique book preserves a people?s rich historical heritage and the legacy of a nation's heroism in war and its courage in peace — in the shaping of their lives and of the world we have today.
