Drawing on previously unpublished eyewitness accounts, prizewinning historian Donald L. Miller has written what critics are calling one of the most powerful accounts of warfare ever published. Here are the horror and heroism of World War II in the words of the men who fought it, the journalists who covered it, and the civilians who were caught in its fury. Miller gives us an up-close, deeply personal view of a war that was more savagely fought - and whose outcome was in greater doubt - than one might imagine. This is the war that Americans on the home front would have read about had they had access to previously censored testimony.

What I loved about listening to this book was that I really felt like I was listening to the people tell their stories. They made everything seem even worse than I imagined it myself, which is why I choose to learn about war.

We must all learn from the lessons of generations past and remember that war is terrible, this book really drives that home.
