""The Good War"," for which Studs Terkel won the Pulitzer Prize, is a testament not only to the experience of war but to the extraordinary skill of Terkel as interviewer. As always, his subjects are open and unrelenting in their analyses of themselves and their experiences, producing what "People" magazine has called "a splendid epic history of World War II." With this volume Terkel expanded his scope to the global and the historical, and the result is a masterpiece of oral history.
