The comments of United States soldiers in World War II are the focus of research and a transcription project led by Edward Gitre, an assistant professor in the Department of History, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Gitre’s work is described in an interview titled “What They Were Thinking: WWII Soldiers’ Insights to Become Public Data Base,” which was broadcast on WVTF, the local National Public Radio affiliate, on May 8.
