What is it About?

A coffee table book that has many pictures and quotes from those who served in the army in WWII.

My Thoughts:

Looking through one of these book with the great many pictures I sometimes hope to see my Grandfather who served in WWII in Italy.  Or since I do research for the family tree I look for simple books that delve into the War that gives me some info on what he went through since he is no longer here so I can not ask.

The quotes were interesting and pictures are a statement in time but I wanted more out of it then it had.  So while it is a good coffee table book that will stand the test of time but does not tell all of the story.
