    He was a Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy from Company B.

    I was sitting in a coffee shop in San Francisco the day the first exerpts (prior to publication of the book) from 'The Good War' first appeared in The Atlantic Monthly. I had just picked up a copy at a newstand and began to read as I settled down with a cup of Java Jive. I heard a sound that got my attention and looked up to see a very dignified gentleman just opposite me reach up with a crisp white handkerchief to wipe a flood of tears from his face. I noticed that he, too, was reading The Atlantic Monthly. I didn't want him to notice me, so I quickly diverted my gaze and returned to the magazine. It wasn't long before my own face was awash with tears. There was a woman that Mr. Terkel had interviewed and one of the most poignant stories I had ever read was told in her 'voice.' It was an interview with Maxene Andrews, of the Andrews Sisters. You really should read the entire book...and especially note this story. It tells a poignant story that certainly touched that gentelman, and me. I'm certain it will touch you, as well.

    Highly Recommend, Read this book

    One of the best books I've read with a new twist on WW II, and the stories most of us would never hear except for here.
