The soldiers of World War II knew that every day could be their last. Still, they kept fighting … and they kept dying. Inside World War II is the intimate story of the last global war, told by the survivors — those who endured the front line's bloody conflicts. Those who witnessed the brutality of combat give their unfiltered accounts. Included in the interviews are former prisoner of war and “Slaughterhouse-Five” author Kurt Vonnegut and the grandson of legendary general George S. Patton.
