The American Soldiers of WWII

Personal letters give authenticity to a study of the WWII American soldiers' experience. Through primary source analysis, historians examine soldiers' roles and unique contributions by groups like the Tuskegee Airmen. A pre-test is linked in the top image. Young historians read letters written by WWII soldiers and analyze their sacrifice. Like most of the links in this resource, The History Channel link doesn't work (use link below). Consider creating a worksheet for the primary source analysis.
