Forever a Soldier - Stories from the Veterans History Project

Drawn from the Library of Congress's Veterans History Project, Forever a Solider is a compendium of stories from on generation of soldiers on down the long gray line and more.

The editors have brilliantly organized the book into general topics with first-hand stories that include a few veterans of today's wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

An earlier sister volume, Voices of War, chronicles over sixty veterans stories and has a similar, brilliant organization.

“Strangely, my sympathy was quickly going to our former enemy, the German civilians.” –William Whiting
