The book covers the period of World War II, The Cold War, and Vietnam--more than thirty-years of rich history from 1940 through 1970. In "War Stories, " there are 325 accounts from WWII veterans. In them, they describe their early training as they prepared for a war that they knew was coming, but had no name for. In great detail they portray the bloody assault on Utah Beach, on D-Day, June 6, 1944 and their subsequent fight through the hedgerows of Normandy. They were the first division to enter Paris, and they rightfully lay claim to the honor of liberating that famous city. They were the first division to breach the "impenetrable" Siegfired line and assure the destruction of Hitler's war machine. From there, they slugged their way through one of the bloodiest battles of the war in the Hurtgen Forest, going on to distinguish themselves again in Luxembourg and the Battle of the Bulge. Their stories are firsthand accounts of the conduct of that war and they conclude with stories from the home front, and their occupation period in the aftermath of WWII. In the 1950s, the 4th Infantry Division faced the Russion threat along the borders of Europe and their tales authenticate the dangers of that period. Again, in Vietnam, the 4th Infantry Division served with distinction and the stories of these Vietnam veterans redefine the word, "sacrifice." In all the stories, a most complelling fact overcomes the reader: This is real history as only the men who fought the battles can describe and authenticate. No textbook, no narrative history can tell it like the men of the 4th Infantry Division. This book is destined to become a source for scholarly research and a book for the shear reading pleasure by those who love soldiers and their "War Stories.""
