PACIFIC BUNDLE STARTER SET
The acclaimed oral histories of World War II... VOICES OF THE PACIFIC, TWO BOOK SET
This collection is packaged with a collector's bookmark. Each book collection is available in PAPERBACK or gray cloth HARDCOVER with embossed spine and glossy color dust jacket.
Volume 1 of The Things Our Fathers Saw® series begins in an upstate NY community, which LOOK Magazine designated as Hometown, USA for a 6-issue patriotic spread in 1944, a microcosm of every other small-town community in the country.
It starts with my quest for a young sailor's body, killed at Pearl Harbor, and follows our young men and women across the Pacific.
Over thirty survivors who fought from Pearl Harbor to the surrender at Tokyo Bay give firsthand accounts of combat and brotherhood, of captivity and redemption, and the aftermath of a war that left no American community unscathed. Includes maps, photos, and never-before-seen portraits. Here are the real stories that LOOK Magazine could not tell.
In VOLUME 8 of The Things Our Fathers Saw® series, you will return to the Pacific with our veterans as they recall the chaos in the aftermath at Pearl Harbor, the first challenges on land at Guadalcanal, island hopping with the Marines, Navy, and Army at the Marshalls, Marianas, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. You will witness the most horrific bonzai charges of the war, accompany airmen on their B-29 missions over Japan, and lean over navy corpsmen as they work to save the wounded. 374 PAGES.
