Overview

This compilation of 76 World War II veterans' stirring recollections presents a remarkable array of stories from all of the major theaters of the war, including the Pacific, Europe, and a saga of Japanese internment in the United States. Gleaned from a series of memoir-writing classes, veterans of the greater Fresno, California, region recorded their memories, thoughts, fears, and feelings on having played a role in World War II. Ranging from riveting to poignant, the stories capture the dramatic moments of epochal combat—including the landings at Okinawa and the Battle of the Bulge—while acutely expressing the difficulties and privations of life during wartime.
