Book and dust new. Dust has Mylar cover. Signed by several heros of WWII. Includes: Medal of Honor winner Hershel W. Williams from Iowa Jima,From the Band of Brothers Jim "Pee Wee" Martin, and Don Jakeway (101st Airborne) with Don Malarky and Al Mampre (506th Parachute Infantry Regiment), Sid Phillips and Art Staymato (1st Marine Division), and Ned Paluch (Normandy). Seller obtained these signatures personally at a show in Ohio. "This lavishly illustrated companion to the September PBS documentary series reduces the American side of WWII to the local and personal. Documentarian Burns (The Civil War) and historian Ward (The Civil War: An Illustrated History) foreground the iconic experiences of ordinary people, including a young girl interned in a Japanese camp in the Philippines, marines in the thick of combat in the Pacific and a fighter pilot who exchanges letters with his sweetheart. Their stories are full of anxiety and exhilaration, terror and pathos." The vivid voices that speak from these pages are not those of historians or scholars. They are the voices of ordinary men and women who experienced—and helped to win—the most devastating war in history, in which between 50 and 60 million lives were lost." Enriched by maps and hundreds of photographs, including many never published before, this is an intimate, profoundly affecting chronicle of the war that shaped our world. Rare if not unique signed copy by military surviving Vets. ; PBS; Photographs, Maps, Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 480 pages; Signed by Collection of Signatures
