"Where Heroes Trained deals with a secretive and highly unusual Army project in World War II. Not a Manhattan Project, but taken nearly as seriously, this was a most interesting sidelight of armored warfare. Caught up in the project were many unwitting GIs who found themselves whisked off to mysterious training bases, introduced to the most powerful tank in the American arsenal, and drilled in one of the war's most imaginative battle tactics. This is oral history as it ought to be done: a truly unusual project with lots of photos, maps and illustrations and-best of all-interviews that have been well edited. Baty and Maddox make even the most commonplace memories of home and camp into absorbing reading. The result is a fascinating look at ordinary American GIs caught up in a strange environment, enmeshed in events they barely understand, and determined to carry it through. Best of all, this is no BS!"
