This book brings you more of the previously untold firsthand accounts of combat and brotherhood, of captivity and redemption, and the aftermath of a war that left no American community unscathed. From the bloody beach at Omaha through the hedgerow country of Normandy and beyond, American veterans of World War II—Army engineers and infantrymen, Coast Guardsmen and Navy sailors, paratroopers and glider pilots, military policemen and tank crewmen—sit down with you across the kitchen table and talk about what they saw and experienced, tales they may have never told anyone before.
