Invisible Heroes of World War II, documents ten fascinating true stories of a diverse group of soldiers and noncombatants from all over the world, including African Americans, women, and Native Americans who worked and fought to keep the world safe from tyranny and oppression. Some were frontline soldiers and spies, while others were engineers, industry workers, or war correspondents and photographers. Without much fanfare, these heroes made noteworthy contributions to the war effort. Some even gave their lives for freedom and liberty. All served with valor and distinction, and their names should never be forgotten.

What amazing men and women supported and served our country during this time of war. It was humbling to read about these invisible heroes who helped shape the war. It's heartbreaking to know what some of them went through and how little the santity of life meant to others. Some of the things were very difficult to read and I had to take it in small doses, but I would recommend it to almost anyone.
I really enjoy books by this author. I love the way he tells the stories about the people in this book. His writing makes these real people and groups jump off of the page. It almost seems as though the reader knows them.
I loved the way I learned about all of the people and groups. Even if I thought that I had at least a basic understanding of the groups, I was able to learn new things about them.
And the individual people were great! I hadn’t heard of any of them. It was so great to learn a little about them. And why their contribution, even though it seemed small, made a difference.
Maybe that’s the main thing I took from this one. Each individuals contribution may be small, but when put with everyone else’s contribution it makes a difference. That’s a great lesson for all of us!
