Over two million American servicemen passed through Britain during the Second World War. In 1944, at the height of activity, up to half a million were based there with the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). Their job was to man and maintain the vast fleets of aircraft needed to attack German cities and industry. Imperial War Museums home Connect with IWM.

This was a gift for my Grandfather. So good to find a larger print book that interests him. Thank you!

Bought for my 85 yr old mom, and she is so enjoying it and all the memories is brings back!

I have a entirely new / positive impression of some of Hollywood's finest and the incredible efforts they made to entertain our troops throughout the US and around the world during WWII

This book is good one for any Andrews Sisters fan or those interested in America at mid-century. What a differant time it was. Imagine a sense of unity and community during a tough national time? Maxene writes simply and lovingly about a time that was clearly special for her and for her sisters. She doesn't dish any dirt, and in fact dedicates her book "with love to Laverne and Patty." She gives a little background of their early career, but focuses on shows, songs, and times in general on the road in the U.S. and in Italy near the end of the war. You can't help but admire their insistance on visiting the most injured soldiers, even when nurses encouraged them not to; as well as their hotel/sleeping accomodations in often less than comfortable places. This despite their being huge entertainers. They clearly wanted to give their all to help the war effort in the ways they could. The sociological times of the country were clearly written by her co-writer, Bill Gilbert, and he gives good insight. Their are many photos in the book, not all of the Andrews Sisters, and not the best quality, but a nice, and important addition to the book. You'll like this book and will want to offer a thanks to Maxene,Laverne and Patty for all their music and dedication.

I am a professional director in the American theatre, and for the last 20 years of her life, it was my joy to direct and collaborate with Maxene Andrews on many shows, radio interviews, personal appearances, and stage appearances! She was a great lady with a heart of gold, and such pride in America!

She always spoke highly of her sisters and family, and was never boastful about the major contribution "The Andrews Sisters" made to America, and especially the WW II effort to bolster the spirits of our fighting men and women.

Maxene is sorely missed by her friends and fans, but the book she wrote with Bill, "Over Here-Over There," is a treat to read and love! She was excited when "telling the memories!" The book especially reflects wit and faith in times of great trouble for our country. The music and the stories behind the shows for the USO are inspiring!

I am happy to have known Maxene and to have been a part of her life as her director and friend! No single singing group in our history has equally the perfection and spirt of these three Greek daughters of an immigrant to America!

Maxene Andrews is a spirit that continues to brighten our torch of freedom through the music that she and her sisters sang. The stories told in this book reflect the scenes behind the scenes of keeping America smiling!

Great book about the Andrews Sisters, their work during the WWII years with the USO, and many of the other stars that participated in these shows to entertain the troops.
