This was an interesting collection of true stories from people who worked behind the lines in World War II. There was a good mix of antedotes, some amusing, some very much not so, but all very insightful in regard to the day to day training and then into the field.

I'd highly recommend it, especially if you're interested in this time period as these are not the stories that are usually in the history books but it's the people who made the difference right down at ground zero level.
