History Press: Book, ''Bennington in World War II'
Bennington in World War 2
The attack on Pearl Harbor changed the lives of the people in Bennington in dramatic ways. Almost overnight, men and women--many of them still too young to vote--went from playing basketball, hunting deer, nursing patients at Putnam Hospital and fishing in the Battenkill to parachuting from burning planes, digging foxholes in Italy, tending to the combat wounded and racing across France with Patton's tanks. They landed at Normandy on D-Day, were in the first planes to bomb Berlin, saw the flag raised on Iwo Jima and were captured at the Battle of the Bulge. At home, they bought war bonds, collected scrap and worried about friends and relatives far away. Join local author Anthony Marro as he recounts the service and sacrifice of Bennington's citizens.
