Iowa's WWII Stories
More than 276,000 Iowans went into military service during World War II. 8,398 never returned. Iowa Public Television's production is a tribute to those Iowans who put their lives on hold for more than three years to fight against the Axis powers of Germany, Italy and Japan. This program preserves the memories of some of those Iowans who served on the home front and the battlefront. [57 minutes]
