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.

    "Great Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Things Our Fathers Saw to be better than the print version?

    I hardly ever read non-fiction but I have an undying respect for WWII vets and all they had to endure during those years. So I thought I would give this book a go and glad I did. The stories here need to be told and as the author says in the book almost all the WWii vets are passing away and soon no-one will be around to tell their stories. If you want to know what these vets went through listen or read this book as it is well written and you can almost picture these men as they tell their stories to the author. I think you will enjoy this book.

    "Excellent book!"

    Mainly recounts the war in the pacific. A collection of first person accounts covering the entire war woven together in a concise, chronological fashion. The voice talent are the excellent!
