What was it really like to storm the beach at Normandy? To be bombarded by Japanese pilots over Midway? To lose your friends and your plane? In this amazing collection of firsthand accounts from ordinary soldiers, readers will understand the true meaning of Twenty-Five Yards of War -- a soldier's eye view of the war he is participating in and doing his duty without being overwhelmed or daunted by the larger mission. A combat veteran himself and editor of Voices of D-Day, Ronald J. Drez became privy to the recollections of thousands of World War II vets who participated in actions all over Europe and the Pacific. Here he tells the stories of twelve such men who spoke at length with him about their incredible experiences in combat: from the preparations and rudimentary planning to the height of the action and its aftermath. And, because these accounts come from low-ranking soldiers rather than from the commanders who sent them into the fray, they are even more revealing about the realities of war. Featuring pivotal battles such as Midway and Normandy, as well as lesser-known operations that were also essential to victory, here is an extraordinary opportunity for fans of military history to understand what it really means to fight -- and live through -- a war. Twenty-Five Yards of War: The Extraordinary Courage of Ordinary Men in World War II Drez, Ronald J. / Ambrose, Stephen E., Hyperion Books
