Product Overview

The first personal narrative about World War II was published two months after America entered the war on December 8, 1941. From then through the year following the end of the war, more than five hundred narratives were published to fulfill the public's need to know and understand all aspects of the conflict. These eyewitness accounts - written by war correspondents, service men and women, homefront civilians, and defense workers - were a welcome change to the stark military dispatches printed in the daily press.
Great Stories of World War II provides a fully annotated, bibliographic listing of each narrative. Entries include citations for reviews in six major American reviewing journals, while providing personal insights into race relations, sexual conduct, combat, missionary life, life as a prisoner of war, concentration camp experiences, and military and civilian politics of the war years.
