The past few days I have been watching and really enjoying the WWII documentary on the History Channel. I have also realized that I don’t know much at all about my grandpa’s experience in WWII. He died when I was ~12 years old and too young to ask questions about it - not that he would have answered them, as he hated talking about it.
What are some of the resources I should check? I assume this is a good start:
I know it’s unlikely that there is much on him, personally. But, I would be interested in the story of what happened to whatever unit he was in. How common and specific are accounts of individual regiments/battalions/companies?
