A companion to his When Winning Was Everything: Alabama Football Players in World War II, Delbert Reed’s All of Us Fought the War extends the story of sacrifice and heroism to the university at large.

An estimated ten thousand men and women with University of Alabama ties served in the military during World War II. At least 350 of them lost their lives, falling in 21 different countries, on 15 islands of the Pacific, and on five of seven seas. Some served long, torturous months in prisoner of war camps and many others were wounded.

The stories shared in this book illustrate the sacrifice of thousands of men and women who went to war to preserve peace and democracy in America and to reclaim freedom for countless million throughout the world.

About the Author:

Delbert Reed is writer-in-residence at the Paul Bryant Museum at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and author of When Winning Was Everything: Alabama Football Players in World War II and Paul "Bear" Bryant: What Made Him a Winner.

Review:

"When I think of his patience under adversity, of his courage under fire, and of his modesty in victory, I am filled with an emotion of admiration I cannot put into words."--Gen. Douglas MacArthur on the American soldier

"My most vivid memory of the war is the horror that I saw on that beach when we landed. I walked up the beach over arms, legs, and bodies for half a mile. It was pretty traumatizing, but you had to keep going and do what you were trained to do."--Beasor Walker, recalling his landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944

"We didn't know what kind of mission we were on until it was over and we were returning to our base. On the way back, we were informed that we had participated in the first atomic bombing mission."--James Strudwick, recalling his mission to photograph the atomic bomb explosion over Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945
