There are qwar storiesq and then there are war stories. These stories, told by many different authors, provide distinctive views of what was going on in different parts of the world during interesting times over the past century. From the time of Pancho Villa to Panmunjom, these firsthand reports give a unique anecdotal history of events that are possibly forgotten or previously unknown. You will read about the first around-the-world flight, experience the tedium and terror of the pivotal battle for Cassino, the stark fear in fighting for your life in the Battle of the Bulge. While there is a grand sweep to well-known battles and war as recounted in history books, this collection gives the reader a view of how individuals saw events unfolding in the small world they inhabited at the time. These are not stale stories of times gone by or tales of heroic deeds, they are living history as written by the men on the ground, on the sea and in the air. Tragedy and humor, fear and boredom are all part of the military experience. You will feel the terror and triumph of men who had little control over the events they witnessed.Although aching and still somewhat dazed by the experience, I found a Chevrolet dealership.
