More than 276,000 Iowans went into military service during World War II. 8,398 never returned. Thousands more who remained at home played major roles in winning the war, as well. The sacrifices of each of these Iowans helped determine the political and social conditions that would exist once the war ended. Iowa Public Television's production of Iowa's World War II Stories preserves some of the memories of those who put their lives on hold in the fight against the Axis powers.
