about

This compilation of 76 World War II veterans' stirring recollections presents a remarkable array of stories from all of the major theaters of the war, including the Pacific, Europe, and a saga of Japanese internment in the United States. Gleaned from a series of memoir-writing classes, veterans of the greater Fresno, California, region recorded their memories, thoughts, fears, and feelings on having played a role in World War II. Ranging from riveting to poignant, the stories capture the dramatic moments of epochal combat--including the landings at Okinawa and the Battle of the Bulge--while acutely expressing the difficulties and privations of life during wartime.
Janice Stevens is the author of ""Fresno's Architectural Past,"" a former staff writer for the ""Business Journal,"" a freelance writer for the ""Fresno Bee,"" and a college-level English composition teacher. She lives in Fresno, California.
