Publisher's Summary

At the height of World War II, LOOK Magazine profiled a small American community for a series of articles portraying it as the wholesome, patriotic model of life on the home front. Decades later, author Matthew A. Rozell tracks down over 30 survivors who fought the war in the Pacific, from Pearl Harbor to the surrender at Tokyo Bay.
The book resurrects firsthand accounts of combat and brotherhood, of captivity and redemption, and the aftermath of a war that left no American community unscathed. Here are the stories that the magazine could not tell, from a vanishing generation speaking to America today. It is up to us to remember - for own sakes, as much as theirs.

Very powerful

Love it. It helped me appreciate even more the sacrifices of my father and his generation. They were the greatest generation of all-time.

Excellent book!

This was amazing to listen to. I found myself seeing this war in their eyes. Learning in school only provided very little compared to what we can learn from those that have experienced it. I wish these men and women could live forever to tell their story.
