In their Own Words: Augusta and Aiken Area Veterans Remember World War II published by the Augusta/Richmond County Historical Society captures the “gripping and comprehensive witnessing of the war” by individuals who “fought on land, sea, and air.” This program will be a presentation by Fred Gehle about the oral histories gleaned from more than 800 local Aiken and Augusta area veterans of World War II.
Fred Gehle coordinated the Veterans History Project for the Augusta-Richmond County Historical Society, which culminated with the DVD, War Stories: Augusta-Area Veterans Remember World War II. A 15 minute clip of War Stories will be shown as a part of this presentation.
The book In Their Own Words: Augusta and Aiken Area Veterans Remember World War II and the DVD War Stories will be available for purchase following the talk.
