Amazing WWII Memorial Pics and Reading
My dad is 87 years old and a WWII Veteran. He resides in NJ and I have wanated to have him come visit me in Maryland so I could take him to see the WWII Memorial. I know it would mean so much to him but because of his and my mom's deteriorating health he has not been able to thus far. The book was a Christmas gift and he has spent countless hours reminiscing and reading it. The pictures are beautiful and the descriptions are detailed. It was a true gift!! I'd recommend it to anyone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Two books in one!
This stunning volume gives you several excellent essays from noted authors about the war itself from battlefield to homefront, plus a history of the conception, controversies and construction of the memorial itself. It also features stories from soldiers and citizens about their war experiences. Especially moving is the testimony of a woman who lost two older brothers at D-Day as a 15 year old school girl.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
