Weider Publishing also took first place in the History: Military/Political category of the International Book Awards in 2011 with WAR STORIES: World War II Firsthand – THE PACIFIC – Volume One – Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal.
Tom Brokaw, of NBC News, recently praised THE PACIFIC – Volume One as “a stunning and evocative reminder of the personal heroism and epic battles over and on seas, island, and mainland, as told by those who were there. Magnificent."
WAR STORIES: World War II Firsthand, presents a perspective on the military campaigns and actions of World War II anchored on the stories told by the soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and other front line personnel who experienced the conflict.
D-Day:The Campaign Across France features heart-wrenching testimony from those who stormed the beaches of Normandy and Southern France; those who jumped behind the lines, manned the ships and flew the missions overhead in the great invasion of Europe, an event unparalleled in history.
"I am honored that D-Day was recognized by the USA BOOK News International Book Awards in the History: Military category” says Bill Breidenstine, publisher. "This recognition is a testament to the dedication and hard work of all involved in the WAR STORIES: World War II Firsthand project. In particular, I want to thank the World War II veterans themselves who came forward and shared their experiences with us. It is because of them that this endeavor of ours to preserve their legacy is truly worthwhile."
Mr. Wertz is also the author of three books -- The Native American Experience, The Civil War Experience: 1861-1865 (both now in their second edition), and co-author of Smithsonian's Great Battles and Battlefields of the Civil War. His television credits include the award-winning 13-part documentary series Smithsonian's Great Battles of the Civil War.
