    The men and women of WW2

    This is their legacy!

Hope, bravery, friendship, fear, love....

Who was involved in D-Day? This page has the answer and features the stories from the men and women who fought, lived and died through WWII. Since 2000 when I started this project I had set one goal for myself. That the website should be made in their honor. It grew from the first story that I received from Ray Aebisher (F Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division) back in 2001 to over 250 stories from all sides of the war. It has become a valuable educational collection of stories about what kind of effect ww2 had on the men and women living through it. The stories are unedited and it is in the words of the men and women who have contributed to my project.

We are now at 174 stories. Many more to come.

The list is layed out up in such a way that the stories that are on top are the new or updated stories.

The personal stories on this website are under copyright of the veterans themselves and the families or people who gave the stories to me. Pictures used on this webiste are owned by the veterans who made them or by whomever made the pictures/videos (mostly these images are in the public domain and can be freely used). If you are the owner of any picture(s) that you wish to remove from this website please contact me.

This website is made out of respect for the victims, the civilians and the veterans of WWII. It generates no financial gain what so ever and it is merely a platform to educate the visitor about WWII.

A big THANK YOU to the United States Army Center of Military History for their help in providing the input for these pages. Visit their website! All pages on this website are constantly being refitted with acurate data and texts and it is an ongoing process. Therfor nobody can take the blame or be held accountable for any errors that may occur on this website. I trust on your understanding.
