    In this companion volume to the popular PCN series, thirty-three of Pennsylvania's World War II veterans recount their wartime experiences. Although these soldiers hail only from Pennsylvania, they represent a cross-section of the war and Americans who served in it. From the attack at Pearl Harbor to the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima, D-Day, and the Battle of the Bulge, these accounts span all the war's theaters, including far-flung China, Burma, and India. Among these veterans are sailors, marines, medics, nurses, paratroopers, machine gunners, radiomen, and prisoners of war. One served as an aide to George S. Patton, and another would become an NFL Hall of Famer. This is a glimpse of World War II as it happened-in their own words.
