Description

WITNESS TO WAR is an eye-opening retelling of the war experience through the private diaries kept by people from all walks of life and from many countries.

WITNESS TO WAR is an eye-opening retelling of the war experience through the private diaries kept by people from all walks of life and from many countries. The twentieth century's Second World War announced its arrival from a distance, and as early as spring 1938 city-dwellers across Europe expected destruction on an epic scale. Men, women and children, most of whom had never kept a diary before, began to chronicle their own responses to what they knew would be a unique moment in world history.

Comments

Both this volume and the author's companion volume about the Pacific Theatre (The Faraway War) are first-rate
collection of primary history, being composed of hundreds of short diary excerpts from those who were actually
there, written at the time of the events themselves. Mr. Aldrich chooses entries from combatants and civilians
from both sides, recording their immediate reactions and interpretations of the events unfolding in their own lives
at the very moment. Through their eyes and their words, YOU ARE THERE.

Well done.
