Southern Californian photographer Thomas Sanders began traveling the country photographing and interviewing hundreds of World War II veterans. The more he shot, the more he listened, and the more captivated he became by their memories of the war.
"The Last Good War: The Faces and Voices of World War II" is a chronicle of courage and hardship, sacrifice and determination. The harsh reality of combat is tempered by tender, poignant moments.
The Chicago Tribune described Tom’s portraits as “…A richly produced book of contemporary portraits of World War II veterans and their stories that range from harrowing to humorous…Thankfully, this is not a sentimental retelling of America’s role in World War II. These are personal gripping stories, told first hand There is a grit and blood, fear and heroism.”
