“The stories at Kendal are magnificent and entirely represent the war experience.”—Brian Williams, NBC Nightly News

An exceptional human document of proud men and women who know what it meant to serve

What stands out so clearly in these "remembrances of things past" is the unmistakable ring of authenticity in every account, a rare quality in the literature of war. Even after 70 years, every recollection remains vivid. Time has done little to dim those parlous times and recollections; they add depth and breadth to tales of wartime and to the significance of experiences lives in service...World War II Remembered is an exceptional human document—a legacy of greatness to be treasured for a very long time.

There are 56 recollections of war in this remarkable book. Each account is a highly personal remembrance of life and death in a war fought 70 years ago in all corners of the globe. Each hero here captures the terror, the drama, the blood, and the boredom of war as they knew it. Each memory is a straightforward account of never-to-be-forgotten experiences. Each is a candid assessment of what it meant to serve.

Edited by Clinton C. Gardner with contributions by Jane Atwood Barlow, Robert W. Christie, Elinor Clark Horne, Mary Meckin Jenkins, James E. Sheridan, and Robert P. Stambaugh

Reviews:

Nightly News anchor Brian Williams said it might be “the greatest slow-motion tragedy of our times.” Veterans of World War II are dying at the rate of 740 a day, he noted on a broadcast earlier this year. That was his lead-in to a segment about a book written by residents of a Hanover, N.H., retirement community. His piece led to a sales bump that made World War II Remembered the fastest-selling book in the 42-year history of the University Press of New England and its first to make Amazon’s top 10. —Boston Globe
