Kaufmann weave together firsthand accounts of American soldiers to capture the complete experience of the individual GI in World War II, from stateside training to overseas combat. Based on interviews with more than 200 veterans, The American GI in Europe in World War II also tells the story of the mighty effort to liberate Europe through the brave young men who fought there.
