Summary

Summary

World War II presented the United States with an impossible challenge-one that could cost countless lives in any single harrowing instant. Yet we plunged in, body and soul, and somehow found moments of tenderness and warmth. Here are the stories of those who fought "the good war." Their voices reveal an indomitable spirit, a peculiarly American optimism, even a weary recognition of the war's unstoppable horrors. Throughout it all, U.S. citizens bucked up and carried on-at home and overseas. The editors of Life are proud to bring you this moment of glory in the American experience-in the words of participants, and in extraordinary photographs that will stay with you forever.
