Once There Was A War by John Steinbeck

Steinbeck once again demonstrates his literary genius and wit in this compilation of brief anecdotes taken from his time as a war correspondent during WWII. Covering American troops in both their travels and their stations in England, Africa, Italy and Sicily, Steinbeck provides the reader with intimate glimpses into the daily lives of soldiers, sailors and airmen, in order to expose the often forgotten humanity still to be found during times of war. A must read for Steinbeck fans!
