About the Author:

STEPHEN W. SEARS is the author of many award-winning books on the Civil War, including Gettysburg and Landscape Turned Red. The New York Times Book Review has called him "arguably the preeminent living historian of the war's eastern theater." He is a former editor for American Heritage.

From Library Journal:

Popular history has brought an awareness of the past to countless more readers and students than the scholarly works which fill our shelves. Few publications have been as consistently successful in introducing Americans to their past as the staff and writers of American Heritage . The three works considered here all consist of essays from previous issues. Eyewitness to World War II is a dramatic "you are there" collection by prominent officers as well as common soldiers, sailors, and airmen. The Civil War and World War II include similar articles, but most of the writers are historians. All three books are useful introductions that can be enjoyed by readers ranging from above average sixth graders on up. Libraries with a complete run of American Heritage may wish to hold off. Worthwhile, but not essential.
