Focusing on the citizens of four towns - Luverne, Minnesota; Sacramento, California; Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama - The War follows more than forty people from 1941 to 1945. Woven largely from their memories, the compelling, unflinching narrative unfolds month by bloody month, with the outcome always in doubt. The iconic events are here, but we also move among prisoners of war, defense workers and schoolchildren, and families who struggled simply to stay together. An intimate, profoundly affecting chronicle of the war that shaped our world, THE WAR captures the American experience of World War II through the words and deeds, thoughts and feelings of those who made history on the battlefields and on the home front.

Excellent but very sad. It offers firsthand accounts from soldiers and prisoners of war. Very informative.
