In this stirring collection of first-person narratives by WWII veterans, Charley Valera opens readers' eyes to the story of how young, ordinary people from modest backgrounds became incredible soldiers, fighting a nasty, close battle that ranged from dropping bombs on barely visible targets to hand-to-hand combat--even fistfights. Perhaps some of the stories aren't exactly how events transpired, but they do capture exactly how each person remembers them.
Many of these veterans are now ninety to ninety-six years old. Charley Valera honors them by chronicling their amazing, heroic war efforts before they are gone and it's too late. We should all salute these brave men and be sincerely grateful for the sacrifices they made for our country and for each one of us.

i absolutely adore this generation. if today the USA WERE even as half as loyal to each other as the greatest generation ..Our problems would be less damaging .
And we would generate peace throughout the world..I want to thank my father. Sergeant William author McGraw for serving in World War II as a radio operator from age 18 to 20 year, thank you Dad I miss you everyday...
