Voices of War Is a verbal and visual mosaic of America’s military history told in the words of those who were there, from the doughboys of World War I to the mechanised warriors of Operation Desert Storm. Selected from among the more than 30, 000 personal interviews, private memoirs, photographs, and letters amassed by the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, Voices of War presents scores of unforgettable eyewitness accounts - vivid vignettes of life in uniform and poignant tributes to fallen friends, battle scenes, and quiet moments behind the lines. Spanning five generations of veterans and the families who prayed for their safe return, this book is a moving chronicle of the courage and commitment of American men and women fighting for freedom all over the globe.
