about

Harrowing and redeeming, this is the history of a unique 'adoption' system. For generations, local families, grateful for the sacrifice of their liberators from Nazi occupation, have cared for not only the graves, but the memories, of over 10,000 US soldiers in the cemetery of Margraten in the Netherlands.
PETER SCHRIJVERS Author of four other books on World War II, among themThe Crash of Ruin: American Combat Soldiers in Europe during World War IIandBloody Pacific: American Soldiers at War with Japan. He teaches American and International History at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
