Signed by Editor; Light edge wear. Inscribed by editor of front fly leaf, bright solid book; Trade PB; 0.7 x 8.9 x 5.9 Inches; 235 pages; 'We Remember WWII' reflects on the lives of more than eighty people and their memories of World War II, who were merely selected because of their residence in Mt. San Antonio Gardens, which is a retirement community. The book includes not just those who were in military uniform, but many others, including spouses, researchers in war industries, merchant mariners, intelligence officers, and even conscientious objectors. Recently, there has been a great deal of emphasis on recording the stories of those involved in the war. This book does that for a large and diversified group and thus presents a well-rounded picture of America during the war. The editor has given a short historical background to go with each area covered, making the individual pieces fit into the overall picture.
