It was the Greatest Generation’s greatest moment: when heroes at home and abroad, united in common purpose as soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines—under the leadership of generals like Patton, Eisenhower, Marshall, and Bradley—rescued Europe from the tyranny and genocide of Adolf Hitler.In War Stories III: The Heroes Who Defeated Hitler, Marine combat veteran Lt. Col. Oliver North gives you a chance to revisit the front lines. Using dramatic first-person testimony, North reveals: The reality of combat: how it felt to live through the Battle of Britain as a citizen and a pilot, on the ground and in the air The stories of Yanks in the RAF: how Americans fought Hitler before Pearl Harbor America’s first taste of battle in North Africa against the Germans—and the French A date with destiny: men and women who joined up together to fight for liberty The saga of war on the home front: how women faced enormous challenges in America, Russia, and Britain and helped win the warFeaturing extended interviews with veterans that cover the war in Europe from beginning to end, War Stories III: The Heroes Who Defeated Hitler is a testament to the courage and sacrifice of the World War II generation—a remembrance of the bravery and honor of these heroes.It belongs in the hands of every veteran, every student, and every American.

This is the second War Stories book that I bought and read. The stories are intriguing and give a firsthand exposure to battles and the war. My dad fought in the European Theater during WW II so reading about places he served makes this book a great find.

The title expresses my sincere sentiments for those who gave it all for our freedom. I am an avid WWII reader and this book ranks very high on my list as one of the very best on the subject. Also I learned a great deal of new information In the words of our heroes as they describe their experiences and sacrifices. They tell it like it was - a dreadful wasteful and tragic war. Highly recommended reading for sure?'!

Col. North does a great job of intermixing strait facts of history with the first hand accounts of the men and women who were there. It really helps bring the historical facts to life.

I think this should be required reading for WW2 history classes, and is great reading for any history buff.

Added bonus- it comes with a great DVD.

This book does, for the war in Europe, what 'War Stories II' did for the war in the Pacific. It is an excellent,complete account. Of course, the input of actual participants only enhance this great read. Don't miss reading this one.

I am enthusiastic about the book and want the book read generally rather than on special merit. Why do I want the book read? Well, there is a whole rising generation for whom WWII is so old and far gone that they really know NOTHING about it. This book is a fine quick overview and quite readable. It doesn't get bogged down in the details of tactics, strategies, or troop movements.

What it does offer that is very inviting is what makes the TV show a success and is suggested by the title. It has the war stories of many individuals to flesh out the brief summaries of aspects of the war. These stories include regular soldiers, people who have since become famous like Senators (and Presidential hopefuls) Dole and McGovern, and Chuck Yeager. There are also stories from women, people who were children at the time, several women including a Russian woman who fought against the German, and a German pilot. As you can tell, these are not the political leader, the generals, or important commanders in the war. The events they participated in were not the key turning points of the war, generally. However, they help us understand how the war was experienced by some of the millions of individuals whose participation in it made the defeat of Hitler possible.

My hope is that young people will read this book and not only learn about the war, but will also become interested enough to move on to other books on World War II and American History. This material is easy to read and is far from being comprehensive or complete, but it does tell its stories well and can be the springboard to something more.

The book also comes with a DVD with three of the episodes of the TV show that inspired this book. Several of the stories in the book are included on the DVD. So, maybe the DVD will spark someone to then read the book.
I am a history fanatic and I really like Military history. I enjoy history so much that I have 2 History degrees, just because I kept taking history classes.
This book not only tells stories of American fighting men, but it also has stories of the men that fought against the Allies.
These are the words of men and women that lived and saw friends die during those bloody battles. No actors or TV script here, dead and wounded, did not get up when someone yelled cut, this is the real thing. I am glad these heroes were able to finally tell us what it was like and how proud they are that they defeated Hitler, as each day more of them go to the "roll call" in the sky.
Start with this book and then go on to the War Stories from the Pacific and finish up with War Stories from Iraq and Special Forces Stories. You will understand what it takes to defend FREEDOM.
