Nearly 200 photographers and reporters of Associated Press volunteered to cover the war across the globe from 1939 through 1945. The heroic achievements of these reporters and photographers-some of whom gave their lives-are remembered through the stunning photographs and moving firsthand reports of World War II: Unforgettable Stories and Photographs by Correspondents of The Associated Press. World War II commemorates the experiences of the individuals who brought the war into the homes of millions of Americans. Originally published in 1945 as Reporting to Remember: Unforgettable Stories and Pictures of the War by Associated Press Correspondents, this updated anniversary edition includes a new interview with former AP World War II correspondent George Bria, as well as a new Foreword by current AP Vice President for International News John Daniszewski.

Connecticut in World War II
With the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan on December 7, 1941, and the United States' entry into World War II, our nation turned to Connecticut-as it did during World War I-for munitions, clothing, and other goods. And Connecticut answered the call: Manchester Mills increased silk production, Waterbury brass producers altered their manufacturing lines, and Bridgeport's Remington Arms-which had produced 50 percent of the US Army's small arms cartridges in World War I-increased its mass production capabilities. By the time Electric Boat, Hamilton Propellers, Pratt & Whitney, and many other Connecticut companies tallied up their production back in 1945, it amounted to over $8 billion in war contracts.
