Overview

The experience of war has affected every generation in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and every soldier has a story to tell.

Since 2000, the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress, has collected and preserved thousands of letters, photos, scrapbooks and memetos, and more than 50,000 recorded oral histories from veterans of the two World Wars, Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf.

This first book to showcase the richness and depth of this collection provokes thoughtful reflection and celebrates the sacrifices made by the millions of veterans who have fought for America.

This volume illustrates how the legacy of war continues in the modern world, and how warfare has changed with the introduction of email, digital photography, and embedded journalists.

Foreword by Max Cleland; afterword by Chuck Hagel.
