Summary
"In this collection of World War II oral histories, Arthur Kelly recreates the experiences of twelve young men from Kentucky who survived the seemingly unsurvivable, whether in combat or as prisoners of war. Their stories of endurance in the midst of chaos and violence tell of fear, rage, exhaustion, and despair, but also of courage, determination, and human kindness."--BOOK JACKET. "These are the stories of men at their best in the worst of all possible times."--BOOK JACKET
