||"... an absolutely wonderful collection of WW2 Vets' stories! Aaron
Elson has collected some of the most exciting and informative stories I have yet to read
on the European Theater. This book is basically a group of mini-memoirs that range in
scope from paratroops to tank personnel to frontline infantry. Each one tells his or her
(yes women did serve!) own story in his or her own way but all of them are fascinating and
will give you a different glimpse of how average americans saw the war. You will enjoy
