Best Little Stories of World War II is a journalistic history of World War II in the form of more than 150 vignettes reflecting the war's humor and pathos, triumph and tragedy. Here is the story of the war as it affected soldiers and civilians, leaders and common folk alike - real people who bravely endured the times.

These and many more stories and anecdotes fill the pages of this fascinating book that will make World War II come alive with the thoughts and feelings of those who were there.From the Publisher:
First in our series of Best Little Stories historical books, Best Little/WWII has proven popular with veteran and general reader alike. Author Kelly is the former (and founding) editor of both Military History and World War II magazines, and he still contributes a Best Little Stories column to Military History. A former newspaper reporter as well (16 years at The Washington Star was his last stint), he teaches journalistic writing at the University of Virginia. He and his wife Ingrid own and operate Montpelier Publishing, publisher of the Best Little Stories historical books. Companion books also available at this time are: Best Little Stories from the Civil War by Kelly, including Varina: Forgotten First Lady by Ingrid Smyer, and Best Little Stories from the White House, again by Kelly, including First Ladies in Review, again by Ingrid Smyer. Here's what Practical Homeschooling magazine (November/December 1996) had to say about our series: "All three of these books fall in the 'can't put down' category."
