We Had A Job To Do: World War II Through The Eyes of Those Who Served
About the Book:
This heartfelt tribute to World War II veterans is history that reads like fiction. 

Follow a soldier who fought on Patton's Third Army and who landed on Omaha Beach at 9.a.m. on D-Day; a female Army Air Forces nurse who made helping veterans her life's work; a fighter pilot who flew with the African-American unit known as the Tuskegee Airmen and who was on one of the two teams that won the first Top Gun meet after the war; a guard in a top-secret intelligence base outside of Washington, D.C. where top german weapons scientists were interrogated; a female aircraft mechanic who served int he Navy and is still active in veterans affairs seventy years later; a gunner on a B-17 heavy bomber who was shot down and spent fourteen months in German prison camps; an airman in General Curtis LeMay's 20th Air Force, the unit that dropped the atomic bombs, and more. 
Get to know some of the patriots who served in World War II. 

My Review:
 So much of our history is gathered in every day events that are spread out among many, many years. World War II is gaining in years as it is slowly removed day by day with the passing of time. Generations are being born that may not even know much about World War II. This to me should not be. It was a critical time in our history that every American should be made aware of. We Had a Job To Do, follows several individuals as there lives cross in an most unexpected yet dynamic way.

 The author takes you on a unique adventure through this period of time where there is no turning back and if it weren't for many people in that day and time we would definitely be speaking from a different perspective. World War II changed many lives forever but it also brought together the grit and the grunt of life that should never be forgotten. If you would like to read more reviews, learn more here.
