My War is a blunt, funny, idiosyncratic account of Andy Rooney's World War II. As a young, na#65533;ve correspondent for The Stars and Stripes , Rooney flew bomber missions, arrived in France during the D-Day invasion, crossed the Rhine with the Allied forces, traveled to Paris for the Liberation, and was one of the first reporters into Buchenwald. Like so many of his generation, Rooney's life was changed forever by the war. He saw life at the extremes of human experience, and wrote about what he observed, making it real to millions of men and women. My War is the story of an inexperienced kid learning the craft of journalism. It is by turns moving, suspenseful, and reflective. And Rooney's unmistakable voice shines through on every page.

I enjoyed this book. Andy Roony isn't exactly Mister Happy, but neither is he full of false patriotism or armchair heroics. I enjoy reading books by WWII veterans whom are quite humble and speak the truth about their experiences. It is the complete opposite of several of the authors whom have written about Iraq and Afghanistan in the past decade.
