Pacific War Stories: In the Words of Those Who Survived

Availability: In stock

by Rex Alan Smith and Gerald A. Meehl

No published collection of first-person oral histories encompasses so many diverse aspects of World War II in the Pacific - in gripping, eyewitness accounts from more than seventy veterans of all branches of service.

In their own evocative words, veterans who fought for their lives against the Japanese Empire more than seventy years ago now think back on the terrifying, perilous, exotic, life-altering events that made up their wartime experiences. What they saw and lived through has stayed with them their entire lives, and much of it comes to the surface again through their vivid memories.

Includes oral histories from past and present USS Arizona Memorial survivor volunteers Everett Hyland, Al Bodenlos, Bill and Ruth Cope, and Sterling Cale.

Hardcover. 512 pages. Includes black and white archive photographs.
