Every single person in America was touched by the events of World War II. Sixteen million Americans served their country in every corner of the globe. This is the story of a group of men who went off to war. They are all from one town, Stamford, CT, but their stories are universal. Author Tony Pavia has interviewed veterans from Stamford, listening to their personal stories as well as stories from those loved ones whom the veterans left behind. One of the most comprehensive oral histories of its kind, this book chronicles every major theater, battle and branch of service in the words of those who lived it.
