Editorial Reviews

Review

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

“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

I love WWII.

This conflict has fueled thousands of stories, films, and other forms of entertainment in the seventy years since its end. But, of course the best stories are those told by those who were actually there.

The youngest of the WWII veterans are in their late 70s or early 80s. Sadly in ten years or so, we may no longer have any WWII veterans, just as we don't have any more WWI veterans.

While reading this, I realized that many of the WWII vets who are still alive are in retirement communities like Kendal at Hanover. I would seriously hope that other retirement communities take Kendal's lead (well, two other books like this came out first, but Kendal's is the one that the media has latched onto) and encourage their residents to write about something they did during the war, no matter how trivial they think it may be. I'd rather the future be inundated with WWII memoirs, than complain that it has too few.

I work in an Assisted Living community and I bought this to share with my residents. Most of the stories are only a few pages long so it was perfect for reading. Some of my residents suffer from memory issues so this was great at holding their attention. What a great activity this has become. My residents look forward to our afternoon readings.

I requested this book as a gift, after hearing about it on NBC Nightly News. It is a collection of first-hand memories, written by residents of a retirment community in New Hampshire, all of whom lived through the war years. It was a truly wonderful read.

World War II Remembered is spell-binding, well written and creates pictures of the time period. It is exactly what we were hoping for.

This book is written by those that are/were residents of a retirement community in Hanover, New Hampshire. Published in 2012 it gives an interesting look of their involvement during the WW11 period. The 60 contributors are broken down in six segments of the war - The European Theater - The Pacific theater and Far East - Stateside Service - Wartime in Europe and South America - Home Front and Post-War Service. AND at the end of each story is a short tid-bit on each contributor and what their current status is.

I find this book to be very, very interesting. Well written and most stories are three to six pages long. It is a 344 page book. Many of the contributors came from educated families or at least the author became one after the War. Never the less they had War stories to tell too.

A worth while read. A must read.
