World War II Remembered by Residents of Kendal at Hanover

As time marches on, we move farther and farther from the events that comprised the Second World War. In this compelling book there are over fifty narratives describing the war abroad and the scenes of the home front. In 2012, this book was featured in a televised piece by “NBC Nightly News” in which a few of the contributors were interviewed. The decorated combat veteran, Robert Christie, penned a verse titled The Hunter which is an especially profound treasure in the work. This book is a “must read” for World War II history buffs.

Open Veins of Latin America by Eduardo Galeano

This book quickly shot to the best seller lists after a copy was gifted to President Obama at the 5th Summit of the Americas in 2009. It was written by one of the most celebrated Latin American journalists of the twentieth century, the late Eduardo Galeano, a Uruguayan author also widely known for his illustrious Memory of Fire trilogy. In it, Galeano analyzes the effects and causes of capitalist underdevelopment in Latin America and presents a passionate account of the five hundred years that spanned from the arrival of the exploitative conquistadors to the time of the work’s original Spanish language publication in 1973.
