"Never Will We Forget deals with the most enduring and moving side of World War II--the personal side. These are the stories of some 400 men and women who, though they experienced the war in wildly different ways, were all profoundly affected by it."
Lansing State Journal
"Compiled from interviews and oral histories from 400 men and women, these stories relate how they participated in World War II and how it affected them….The book is a work of immense scope told by the people who were there."
"In this new work, Culpepper retains her interest in military conflict but expands her focus on the activities of women….Here she chronicles various aspects of US participation in WW II. Chapters focus on theaters of action, branches of military services, pivotal campaigns, and the contributions of all aspects of US society to the war effort--military and civilian, overseas and on the home front. Culpepper's use of oral history conveys to readers the personal tension, sacrifice, and suffering that Americans encountered and experienced during the war. Her narrative is informative and engaging….Public libraries will want this book. Academic libraries supporting courses on WW II and public history programs should also add it to their collections. Highly recommended. All public and academic levels/libraries."
"It is this diversity of topics that is the strength of Never Will We Forget. . . . if readers enjoy learning their history from personal stories and interesting vignettes, Never Will We Forget provides a nice introduction to the American experience during World War II."
