“World War II launched the US into the ‘superpower’ stratosphere. The sacrifices of the people who served benefit us in ways we should never forget. Kelly Milner Halls’ depiction of these heroes makes for great, informed reading.” —Chris Crutcher, author, former child and family therapist, and son of a WWII B-17 bomber pilot
“I finally found a book that is equally loved by K-12 students, university pre-service teachers, and teachers involved in the local National Writing Project site. Heroes of World War II by Kelly Milner Halls is an amazing collection of engaging stories about the brave heroes of the war. Halls provides valuable additional resources not found in other books on this topic, and her collection is a refreshing change from other collections that often lack the rich, diverse history of the little-known people who cared enough to use their voices for good.” —Dr. Susan Densmore-James, associate professor, director, Emerald Coast National Writing Project
