Memories of havoc and bloodshed during the Second World War, as seen through eyes of the people who experienced it for themselves… Listen to the people who were there when it happened…
In this historical account, Jimmy Lee Beasley Sr. takes a look back at the largest and most violent armed conflict in the history of mankind. I Was There When It Happened is a capitulation of many World War II stories. The author spent six months going from one VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) to another just to record their stories. “I did this so we may remember these fine men for what they were and for what they gave to their country,” the author says.
Not only does this book record the effects of war on one nation, but also encompasses a universal scope, which readers will find comprehensive. Through the accounts of these brave men and women, readers will be able to experience what it was like to live in uncertainty in a period of peril. I Was There When It Happened is a compilation of stories from these people who not only stepped up to fight, but banded together as brothers with one common goal in mind: to keep the world free.
