From the award-winning author of the 'The Things Our Fathers Saw' World War II eyewitness history series 800 PAGES, including:
*Volume I: Voices of the Pacific Theater-
The telephone rings on the hospital floor, and they tell you it is your mother, the phone call you have been dreading. You've lost part of your face to a Japanese sniper on Okinawa, and after many surgeries, the doctor has finally told you that at 19, you will never see again. The pain and shock is one thing. But now you have to tell her, from 5000 miles away.
*Volume II: War in the Air--From the Great Depression to Combat-
HOW DO YOU THINK YOU FEEL when you wake up in a hospital and find out you killed your own mother?
JUST WHAT DO YOU DO in that moment when your plane's been hit, and you are about to crash far from home?
*Volume III: War in the Air--Combat, Captivity, and Reunion-
WHAT DO YOU FILL YOUR POCKETS WITH when you're rousted awake in the middle of a freezing German night to be death-marched across Germany?
WHEN YOUR BUDDY STAGGERS AND FALLS by the side of the road, and no longer even knows who you are, do you keep moving to keep yourself alive?
By the end of 2020, fewer than 400,000 of our WW II veterans will still be with us, out of the over 16 million who put on a uniform. But why is it that today, nobody seems to know these stories?
Maybe our veterans did not volunteer to tell us; maybe we were too busy with our own lives to ask.
"For all of us to be free, a few of us must be brave, and that is the history of America". Read how a generation of young Americans saved the world.
Because dying for freedom isn't the worst that could happen. Being forgotten is.
-- "A must-read in every high school in America. It is a very poignant look back at our greatest generation; maybe it will inspire the next one."
