This is a collection of stories told by those who lived during World War II. Each story is unique and offers a unique view of those days. I felt a closeness to the stories and the people who were telling them as I have worked with veterans from WWII and my grandfather was active duty military during WWII. This is an easy to read and understand collection of viewpoints that offers information in a personal way. I like the way the book is written and feel the layout and conclusion is very well done. For anyone interested in this era of our history I can easily recommend this book. I received an ARC through Smith Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
