|Enriched by maps and hundreds of photographs, the companion volume to the forthcoming PBS series, "The War" is the story of World War II captured in the hearts, minds, words, and deeds of those who made history at its most essential level: on the battlefields and on the homefront.|
From the Publisher:
The vivid voices that speak from these pages are not those of historians or scholars. They are the voices of ordinary men and women who experienced—and helped to win—the most devastating war in history, in which between 50 and 60 million lives were lost.
This companion volume to the PBS series THE WAR, directed by Ken Burns and written by Geoffrey C. Ward, makes history come alive as it chronicles the central event of the 20th century: World War II. Focusing on four American towns, Burns and Ward use oral history and documentary materials to tell the stories of those who went to fight in Europe or the Pacific and those who stayed behind, and the sacrifices made by all. Illustrated, with over 450 photographs.
