This book offers new insights into the war experience as seen by Armenian-Americans, featuring 48 military histories and enough war stories to last for generations. Author Richard Demirjian traveled for years throughout the United States and Canada tracking down veterans for their wartime accounts. “What do all these stories have in common? They’re about Armenians who fought in combat and came home with extraordinary tales of survival,” Demirjian said in an interview. He tape-recorded hours of interviews with veterans, after which researcher Art Sarkisian of Concord, California, transcribed them with voice-recognition software. The book features accounts of Armenian men and women who served in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater, European-African-Middle Eastern Theater, Foreign Military Service, Korea, and Vietnam.
