Pacific War Stories: In the Words of Those Who Survived
Approaching the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II, this is the most extensive collection published to date of first-person oral histories on so many diverse aspects of the war in the Pacific--told in gripping, eyewitness accounts by more than seventy veterans from all branches of service.
In this new book by the authors of Pacific Legacy: Image and Memory of World War II in the Pacific, the history of the War in the Pacific comes vividly to life in the words of those who witnessed it first hand. The editors create for the reader, as the veterans themselves recall it, what that war was like--how it looked, felt, smelled, and sounded. The stories collected here are a unique portrayal of the mundane, exotic, boring, terrifying, life-altering events that made up their wartime experiences in World War II in the Pacific, a war fought on countless far-flung islands over an area that constitutes about one-third of the globe. What the veterans saw and lived through has stayed with them their entire lives, and much of it comes to the surface again through their vivid memories.
