Today is the day we honor our veterans. Yet many of us, particularly the young amongst us, know little of World War 2, a war that every American played a part in. A new book that pays tribute to World War II veterans hopes to change that. As an immigrant myself born during the war, their stories bring me closer to the truth of that war than anything I learned in school. Of course, there have been many brilliant books published abut the war and I share a few others particularly important to me.
