520    " With a foreword by Stephen Ambrose and a preface by 
       Franklin D. Anderson Forrest Pogue (1912-1996) was 
       undoubtedly one of the greatest World War II combat 
       historians. Born and educated in Kentucky, he is perhaps 
       best known for his definitive four-volume biography of 
       General George C. Marshall. But, as Pogue's War makes 
       clear, he was also a pioneer in the development of oral 
       history in the twentieth century, as well as an impressive
       interviewer with an ability to relate to people at all 
       levels, from the private in the trenches to the general 
       carrying four stars. Pogue's War is drawn from Forrest 
       Pogue's handwritten pocket notebooks, carried with him 
       throughout the war, long regarded as unreadable because of
       his often atrocious handwriting. Pogue himself began 
       expanding the diaries a few short years after the war, 
       with the intent of eventual publication. At last this work
       is being published. Supplemented with carefully deciphered
       and transcribed selections from his diaries, the heart of 
       the book is straight from the field. Much of the material 
       has never before seen print. From D-Day to VE-Day, Pogue 
       experienced and documented combat on the front lines, 
       describing action on Omaha Beach, in the Huertgen Forest, 
       and on other infamous fields of conflict. He not only 
       graphically -- yet also often poetically­­ -- recounts 
       the extreme circumstances of battle, but he also notes his
       fellow soldiers' innermost thoughts, feelings, opinions, 
       and attitudes about the cruelty of war. As a trained 
       historian, Pogue describes how he went about his work and 
       how the Army's history program functioned in the European 
       Theater of Operations. His entries from his time at the 
       history headquarters in Paris show the city in the early 
       days after the liberation in a unique light. Pogue's War 
       has an immediacy that much official history lacks, and is 
       a remarkable addition to 
520 8  any World War II bookshelf. Franklin D. Anderson, Forrest 
       Pogue's nephew by marriage, is a longtime educator. He 
       lives in Princeton, Kentucky
