This is a beautiful coffee table book of amazing photography of amazing men and women of the armed services who served in WWII and their stories.

Found this at the library tonight and read it waiting for my daughter's dance lesson. It's a big coffee-table book with stunning photos of WWII vets, and their short bios and war stories. Adds to my appreciation and admiration of the brave men and women who have fought for our country.
