Grouchy Historian’s Bookshelf
Of course, you can't escape the PC influence as the writings of women and African-American reporters are highlighted, but to be fair, the articles do present some lesser known cultural and social aspects of the war not recounted in traditional military histories. The articles do cover a wide range of topics and feature such well known reporters as Willam Shirer, Edward R. Murrow, and the quintessential war reporter, Ernie Pyle.
They cover the entire chronography of the war, from the Munich Crises to the end of war and all theaters as well.
Overall, although these books may seem a little pricey, they are well worth the cost and make an excellent primary source addition to any World War II historian's library.
