Amherst Rotary Goes to War

Amherst Rotary Club in World War II

Between 1941 and 1945, over sixteen million men and women served in the U.S. armed forces. In an effort to deepen our understanding of the Second World War and capture individual voices for posterity, this book collects twenty personal accounts from members of the Amherst Rotary who served. In these narratives, veterans share their stories, many for the first time.

Edited by University of Massachusetts Professor Emeritus Mason Lowance Jr., the stories here are dedicated to those comrades who did not come home.
