TOLD IN THEIR OWN WORDS...
From the award-winning author of the 'The Things Our Fathers Saw' World War II eyewitness history series - ONE BOOK, including:
Volume IV: Up the Bloody Boot/The War in Italy—The Things Our Fathers Saw
Volume 4 in this series will take you from the deserts of North Africa to the mountains of Italy with the men and women veterans of the Italian campaign who open up about a war that was so brutal, news of it was downplayed at home. The war in the Mediterranean, and particularly the Italian Campaign, is one that for many Americans is shrouded in mystery and murkiness. Yet it was here that the United States launched its first offensive in the west on enemy soil, and it was here that Allied forces would be slogging it out with a tenacious enemy fighting for its life in the longest single American Campaign of World War II.
Volume V: D-Day and Beyond/The War in France—The Things Our Fathers Saw
Volume 5 in this series is really the book I had in mind to write as I began to collect and process WWII interviews after being inspired at our veterans' return to Normandy for the 40th anniversary of D-Day. From the bloody beach at Omaha through the hedgerow country of Normandy and beyond, American veterans of World War II—Army engineers and infantrymen, Coast Guardsmen and Navy sailors, tank gunners and glider pilots—sit down with you across the kitchen table and talk about what they saw and experienced, tales they may have never told anyone before.
Volume VI: The Bulge And Beyond—The Things Our Fathers Saw
Volume 6: In THE BULGE AND BEYOND, you will be with the soldiers going into the heart of the bloodiest single battle fought by the US Army in American history, the so-called 'Battle of the Bulge'.
You will be with them as they sense the fear of the unknown, the crush of impending doom, the scale of being among the columns of young, tired men slogging into a forest, medieval and dark, with the complete inability to ever get warm again.
19,000 American GIs never saw their mothers again.
By the end of 2020, fewer than 300,000 of our WW II veterans will still be with us, out of the over 16 million who put on a uniform. But why is it that today, nobody seems to know these stories?
Maybe our veterans did not volunteer to tell us; maybe we were too busy with our own lives to ask.
"For all of us to be free, a few of us must be brave, and that is the history of America".
Read how a generation of young Americans saved the world.
Because dying for freedom isn't the worst that could happen. Being forgotten is.
-- "A must-read in every high school in America. It is a very poignant look back at our greatest generation; maybe it will inspire the next one."
