Praise

“A fine companion to the PBS documentary. . . . Well-chosen and well-reproduced period phtographs are here in generous quantity.”—Publishers Weekly

“The book’s purpose, editor Brinkley indicates, is similar to the monument’s: to induce those without living memory of the war to appreciate the conflict’s enormous effect on America. Thus the memorial itself has an accessible classical design, with arches, columns, bas-relief bronzes, and inscriptions. The book is similarly approachable, with plenty of photographs of the memorial and of the war. . . . Excellent as commemoration and an able introduction.”—Booklist

“An excellent addition to the literature.”—Library Journal
