The story of World War II by Donald L Miller( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on previously unpublished eyewitness accounts, prizewinning historian Donald L. Miller has written one of the most powerful accounts of warfare ever published.

Miller gives us an up-close, deeply personal view of a war that was more savagely fought--and whose outcome was in greater doubt--than one might imagine. This is the war that Americans on the home front would have read about had they had access to the previously censored testimony of the soldiers on which Miller builds his gripping narrative
