World War II was the defining event of the twentieth century. For everyone it was a time of confusion, fear, destruction, and death on a scale never before seen. Much has been written of the generals, campaigns, and battles of the war, but it was young, ordinary American kids who held our freedom in their hands as they fought for liberty across the globe. Forgotten Heroes of World War II offers a personal understanding of what was demanded of these young heroes through the stories of rank-and-file individuals who served in the navy, marines, army, air corps, and merchant marine in all theaters of the war. Their tales are told without pretense or apology. At the time, each thought himself no different from those around him, for they were all young, scared, and miserable. They were the ordinary, the extraordinary-the forgotten.

MEDIA REVIEWS
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Forgotten Heroes of World War II . . . offers contemporary readers fourteen intensely personal perspectives of individual rank-and-file soldiers, aviators, and seamen who were quite ordinary people thrown into the extraordinary and often horrific demands of World War II combat. Their strength and valor are commemorated in this moving, compelling, informative, and highly recommended contribution to the growing library of World War II military histories. * Midwest Book Review *

“Brave men!”

I had the honor and privilege to meet three of the men in this book: Oscar Russell, Harry Bell and Jerry O'Keefe at the book launch in Biloxi, Mississippi in November. I felt like I was hugging my dad. He, too,... More
