PULITZER PRIZE WINNER

OVER FIVE MONTHS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST

Tremendously compelling, somehow dramatic and intimate at the same time
-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"The Good War" for which Terkel won the Pulitzer Prize, is a testament not only to the experience of war but to the extraordinary skill of Terkel as interviewer. As always, Terkel's subjects are open and unrelenting in their analyses of themselves and their experiences, producing what People magazine has called "a splendid epic history of World War II." With this volume Terkel expanded his scope to the global and the historical and the result is a masterpiece of oral history.
