Never Will We Forget deals with the most enduring and moving side of World War II, the personal side. These are the stories
of some 400 men and women, who, though they experienced the war in wildly different ways, were all profoundly affected by
it. Gleaned from interviews and oral histories, the book reflects the experiences of male and female veterans, civilians on
the home front, conscientious objectors, survivors of the torpedoing of the USS Indianapolis and of typhoons, participants
in the Normandy Invasion, the Battle of the Bulge, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. Some stories tug at the heart, some foster the shock
of surprise, still others reflect the long-held pride in the American war effort at home and abroad. From the first dark stirrings
of war through its dusty aftermath, Never Will We Forget captures how Americans lived, felt, and believed during the twentieth
century's most brutal conflict.
