Overview

Maxene, Patty and LaVerne - the Andrew Sisters. Their songs and-can-do singing style immortalized the 1930s and 40s. Their upbeat, three-part harmony brightened the spirits of Americans at home and abroad during the dark years of World War Il. In Over Here, Over There, Maxene Andrews and Bill Gilbert make those years come alive again in a richly nostalgic, warmly affectionate look back at a country at war - and the talented men and women who entertained the troops who were fighting it. Touring America fifty weeks a year, singing songs like "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B," the Andrew Sisters played to standing-room-only civilian audiences in theaters and auditoriums, performed at war bond rallies in Times Square and the Hollywood Canteen, visited soldiers at military posts and hospitals, and traveled to North Africa, Sicily and Europe for the USO. Over Here, Over There is also the story of the many other stars - Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Ann Sheridan, Kathryn Grayson, Abbott and Costello, Mickey Rooney, and Glenn Miller, to name only a few - who entertained a combined audience of 161 million servicemen and women in just four years. Here's a singer's soft strains of "Abide With Me" over a fresh muddy grave in Anzio . . . Ann Miller collapsing after twenty-four hours at a hotel-turned-hospital . . . Patty Andrews announcing V-J Day and the end of the war to a stunned GI audience in Naples. Brimming with the energy, the excitement, the sense of camaraderie - and the music - of the times, Over here, Over There is a lovingly crafted memoir and tribute to the unforgettable moment in our history when a unique blend of national unity, loyalty and spirit brought Americans together as never before . . . and never since.

The upbeat, three-part harmony of the Andrews Sisters brightened the spirits of Americans at home and abroad during the dark years of World War II. This book makes those years come alive again in a richly nostalgic, warmly affectionate look back at a country at war--and the talented men and women who entertained the troops fighting it.

Editorial Reviews

Mary Frances Wilkens
Maxene Andrews (yes--one of the old-time Andrews Sisters singing group) with the help of Bill Gilbert, relives all the patriotism of the World War II-era in this look at how the USO helped the U.S. endure one of its most difficult times. The Andrews Sisters, along with many other then-famous Hollywood stars, brightened the spirits of thousands of soldiers and civilians, whether at home or abroad. Though the authors' reminiscent tone and nostalgic anecdotes leave a saccharine aftertaste at times, you can't help but be moved by--and secretly wish for a return to--the simple charm and wide-eyed hope that symbolized a generation.
