PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Forgotten Heroes of World War II ... offers contemporary readers fourteen intensely personal perspectives of individual rank-and-file soldiers, aviators, and seamen who were quite ordinary people thrown into the extraordinary and often horrific demands of World War II combat. Their strength and valor are commemorated in this moving, compelling, informative, and highly recommended contribution to the growing library of World War II military histories. Midwest Book Review

All the men and women who ever served are heroes, and so are their families. I salute them all.

Good overview of Europe and the Pacific...
Short vignettes that are easy to digest...
I think this book should be required reading for all students from Middle to High School since it tells the truth through the eyes of those who lived it. I highly recommend this for all. I hope it get published in every language there is.
