In conversational tones, but with boresight accuracy, “Keep Their Stories Alive” chronicles the World War II experiences of 135 men and women with connections to the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina.
Among other venues, this 432-page journey is a primer on Doolittle’s Raid, Guadalcanal, D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge, aircraft from trainers to B-29s, ships from Higgins Boats to battleships, POW camps, Iwo Jima, Okinawa and the atomic bomb – and much more.
Flavored by local men and women who insist they didn’t do anything heroic, these “nuts and bolts” installments are the real deal. Now in it’s second limited printing, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in World War II and/or local Piedmont Triad NC history.
Author Harry T. Thetford has provided a magnificent record of World War II experiences with his compilation of interviews as recorded in “Keep Their Stories Alive”. What a clever way to preserve the experiences of those who made such diverse sacrifices and came home to share their stories for the education of future generations.
