The Victors

 

 

Title: The Victors by Stephen E. Ambrose

Category: Nonfiction, History, War World II

Review: I loved this book. Stephen Ambrose usually writes great books about War World II. This particular book was about D-Day and what occurred afterwards. He talks about the hard decisions that Eisenhower had to make when he sent the troops in on D-Day and to the other battles, like the Battle of the Bulge. He also talks about the troops, in specific, the GIs. He tells us about the different troubles they had to go through while in battle. He also gives quotes from the different men who were in the war all throughout the book. As with all his books, he has some great pictures of the troops and the scenery of the battles. He also mentions something that I never thought of. That without the men from that period, we wouldn’t have such things as highways and interstates and NASA. It was the GIs and other men who survived the war who wanted to make a positive change and did change America.
