Experiencing War (Voices of War): Stories from the Veterans History Project

is the companion website for a book from the Veterans History Project. Video interviews, photos, and letters relate war through the eyes of 60 veterans and civilians. Stories are organized by book sections -- answering the call, a day in the life, combat, coming home -- and by themes: courage, life-altering moments, hurry up and wait, D-Day, POWs.

Interesting Fact:

James Mulligan, Jr.'s memoir offers an astounding amount of detail on the 2522 days he spent as a captive of North Vietnam, after his plane was shot down in March 1966. Mulligan called himself a memory bank for the other POWs, memorizing names and details about over 400 of them, which he mentally reviewed three times every day.
