Volume 1. The Legends, Page 1 -- Legends Page 2 -- Sightings Page 1 -- Sightings Page 2 -- Sightings Page 3 How the Kilroy Was Here legends started from the most likely to the most whimsical. Sightings of Kilroy Was Here which continue today

Volume 2. The Foreword and Dedication -- The American GI -- Who we are and what are we doing here?

Volume 3. "The Way We Were"
Stories from individuals during the war years. These stories are sometimes heroic, sometimes funny, poignant, or simply memories that must not be forgotten. This Volume has two sub sections:

In Harm's Way, Page 1 -- Page 2 --Stories from the front like: "About D-day plus 5 on Saipan, I was watching for Japanese soldiers along the beach who were sneaking in to give directions for artillery fire. I was sitting in the turret of an armored Amphib. About 2300 I saw the faint outline of what appeared to be a Marine walking along the beach. There was no moon and the only light was from a fire burning about one hundred yards away. Japanese soldiers had a habit of wearing U.S. Marine helmets and carrying M1's when they could find them. In the dark they were hard to identify by a silhouette. When the guy got within 50 feet, I asked the usual "Who goes there?". The answer came back in perfect English, "ITS ME, GI JOE. A MARINE LIKE YOU." So I aimed about 8 inches below the outline of his helmet and shot. The next morning there was one dead Japanese officer in the sand. I never heard of a Marine calling himself G I Joe. I don't think I ever will.

The Battle, The Planes, The Terror!
Woody Wood brings his clear, extraordinary talent to bear on this
important time in history!

The Home Front, Page 1 Many wonderful stories about life at home during the war. One, a lovely, privileged debutante who rolled up her sleeves and joined the war effort. Another, a beautiful widow who struggled through it alone. Several more, for example, a child's reaction to the Blitz in London.

Racing to Bastogne. A Sighting by Robert Capa

The Battle of the Bulge

Woody Wood has come up with another wonderful story! This one is a Sighting by the famed photographer as he raced to save the 101st at Bastogne.

Volume 4. The Places, Page 1 -- Page 2 -- What's left of the places that played a large role in WWII or Korea. Some are still there while some are just ruins. One is the German POW camp in Clinton MS (near Jackson). "The good people in Clinton and Jackson, MS just couldn't give up their Southern hospitality long enough to run a proper prisoner of war camp! Read this wonderful story of a POW camp so good that the German prisoners come back for reunions!"

Volume 5. Miscellany, Page 1 -- Page 2 --This is some of the sidebars to that history. It includes Gremlins and Foo Fighters as well as book reviews and even Lena the Hyena

Volume 6. "The Rest of the Story" Page 1." Inspiring and unique stories of the war years. You have probably been sent some of these via e-mail. Many have been picked up and sent around by people who were moved by them. Gordon Sinclair's "The Americans" or, believe it or not, when the US mainland was bombed by the Japanese. I don't mean balloon bombs or shelling by a submarine, but actually bombed from an enemy aircraft.

Volume 7. Letters to the editor Page 1 -- Page 2 --
Volume 7, Searches Page 1 - Page 2

Volume 11. Is the Guest Book . . . Now's your chance to write on HIS wall!
