War Stories: World War II Firsthand™ is the only multi-volume history of the war to include hundreds of first-person interviews and oral history recollections of the soldiers on the ground, the sailors on the high seas and the airmen in the sky. Their words, augmented by quotes from military and political leaders and modern historical thought, give a complete picture of the war from those who fought it. This volume features firsthand recollections and perspectives from those who witnessed the Rise of Fascism in Europe, the invasion of Poland, and the 1940 German Blitzkrieg across Europe.
“An inherently fascinating and impressively informative read from cover to cover, "The World Turns to War" is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library 20th Century History and World War II collections, as well as the personal reading lists of students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in these subjects.” ~Midwest Book Review
“An altogether superior account of WW2 based on quotations and observations by people who actually took part in the conflict. An amazing book.” ~Books Monthly
