This is a different kind of history book, one told, not by historians, but by the families of the veterans of World War II. Here they tell the stories that have never been heard. Stories that the veterans told only to their wives and children; stories so personal, so touching, and so real that it will change the way you look at the war and change the way you see the men and women of the greatest generation.
Soldiers’ Stories: A Collection of World War II Memoirs opens our eyes to the reality of war and opens our hearts to these soldiers in a way that can only be seen through the eyes of the people who loved them.
This is a beautiful book in so many ways. You won’t be able to put it down and you will never forget it. Additional links http://bit.ly/2h4ESsg or http://amzn.to/2gW8fJX history/non-fiction
