    What was it like to be an American GI in Europe during WWII?

    It is not easy for someone who did not live through it to know or understand what the American GI stepped up to face in our quest to defeat this threat to freedom worldwide. Much money, material and people where thrown into America's war time effort. Much time was spent on training for battle. Not every soldier got enough time to train or was provided with the training he would wind up needing. Also, as the book points out no amount of training can truly prepare you for actual combat.
    This book and others like it, which are based on interviews with the front line soldiers who lived through the fighting, are an effort to bring the non combatant reader to a closer understanding of how human these men were. How some of them were able to cope with the terrors of war better than others but all were tested beyond anything they would have thought they could take.
    Enough of them kept going and became The Victors. They saved the world from true evil.
    We won't know exactly how much they gave of themselves in this effort but books like this one just want to point out some of what they gave so they will be held in history as the heroes they truly were.

    A quick and informative read.

    This book is a brief review of the major parts of the Allied European campaign in WW II. Ambrose brings parts of several of his other books into a relatively quick, but informative read. Having read the other books, I felt that I was repeating most of the material, but Ambrose weaves the material together well. He also gives a lot of thoughtful reflection on what it took to win the war. Many touching accounts are presented. An excellent book to introduce the subject to the reader.

    Terrific Book

    Well written; a terrific read. The author does a great job of bringing WW II to life by telling the true stories of American soldiers. Many of the stories moved me to tears.
