The Good War: An Oral History of World War II

De (autor): Studs Terkel

The first trade paperback edition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book with a new Preface by the author. "As in "Hard Times" and "Working", this master interviewer again creates a turbulent epic of human experience by quoting the words of those who lived it. . . . A vivid resurrection of a lost time".--"Newsday".
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize: "The richest and most powerful single document of the American experience in World War II" (The Boston Globe).

"The Good War" is a testament not only to the experience of war but to the extraordinary skill of Studs Terkel as an interviewer and oral historian. From a pipe fitter's apprentice at Pearl Harbor to a crew member of the flight that dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki, his subjects are open and unrelenting in their analyses of themselves and their experiences, producing what People magazine has called "a splendid epic history" of WWII. With this volume Terkel expanded his scope to the global and the historical, and the result is a masterpiece of oral history.

"Tremendously compelling, somehow dramatic and intimate at the same time, as if one has stumbled on private accounts in letters locked in attic trunks . . . In terms of plain human interest, Mr. Terkel may well have put together the most vivid collection of World War II sketches ever gathered between covers." --The New York Times Book Review

"I promise you will remember your war years, if you were alive then, with extraordinary vividness as you go through Studs Terkel's book. Or, if you are too young to remember, this is the best place to get a sense of what people were feeling." --Chicago Tribune

"A powerful book, repeatedly moving and profoundly disturbing." --People
