Over the past several years I have had the privilege of interviewing 250 World War II veterans. Their stories fascinate me as I hear about multitudes of areas of service and perspectives from men and women.
I have written three books containing stories told to me in face-to-face interviews. The first book is called We Fought to Win: American WWII Veterans Share Their Stories (2014). The collection of 28 stories include experiences ranging from D-Day to Iwo Jima. The second book, They Did It for Honor: Stories of American WWII Veterans (2017), contains 34 stories about WWII veterans who served in the Marines, Army, Navy, Army Air Corps, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marines. My third book, We Gave Our Best: American WWII Veterans Tell Their Stories (2018), includes stories of various branches with the addition of a story of an Army Air Corps crew member who was shot down over occupied Germany and held prisoner for nearly a year by the Germans.
These books are in print form and Books 1 & 3 are available in Kindle version. We’re working on adding Book 2 to Kindle and creating an audio version of Book 1.
After completing a WWII tour of Europe, I share my experiences of being on the battlefields of Germany, France, Belgium and Luxembourg with audiences. The 45-minute talks are interspersed with comments from WWII veterans who served there, including Omaha and Utah Beaches as part of the D-Day Invasion.
