The Last Veterans of World War II by Richard Bell

This book is super powerful. You will be looking into the eyes and the heart of the last remaining men and women who fought for our freedom in World War 2. You will learn their name, current age, branch of service, as well as  their thoughts, feelings, and memories from their days during WW2.

There are also black and white photos of each of these hero's as their are now, as well a pictures of them in the days of the war. In the photo's of their younger days each persons hands are represented holding those pictures. These pictures are like an emotional gut punch. The pictures alone are enough to tell part of their story, paired with their words makes this one of the best books I have ever read.

Whether you agree with war or not this is a part of our history. The 44 men and women featured in this book are some of the few remaining members of our military from that time period. Most are in their 90's. Their lives may end soon but with this book there stories never will.

Thank you for giving me a copy of this book.
