Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Tom Kindre, a retired public relations executive, is a 1942 graduate of Rutgers University and a World War II veteran. Following his 50th class reunion, he conceived the idea of an oral history of the war based on interviews of Rutgers alumni and led his classmates in a drive to launch the project, which has grown into the world-renowned Rutgers Oral History Archives. He is president of the Rutgers Living History Society and an officer in the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. His previous book, Jeanie Johnston: A Voyage Against All Odds, recounts his adventure as a crew member on the transatlantic maiden voyage of the republican Irish famine ship Jeanie Johnston.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Barbara Klion on January 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
One of the most interesting books on World War II. The book tells the stories of what a Soldier-Marine-Sailor experienced in World War II. This is from the bottom up--not about the strategic planning from our Commanders, but about how the average GI lived, experienced battle, and survived to return home and begin their careers. Truly the stories of "The Greatest Generation".

Highly recommended.
