tattooed-on-my-soul-cover-340wFor over forty years, Baylor University has gathered the flesh-and-blood memories of the World War II generation in the state of Texas. This collection, edited by Stephen Sloan, Lois M. Myers, and Michelle Holland, brings together seventeen of the most compelling narratives from the university’s collection of more than five thousand interviews. These recollections provide an authentic and powerful mosaic of the critical World War II years in Texas and give intimate glimpses into the lives of those who fought.

With a diverse cross-section of Texas’ population and a wide range of wartime assignments, this collection spans land, sea and air, in the Pacific and in Europe, to provide an authentic history of the time. These stories, rich with detail, make a global war personal. Tattooed on My Soul adds a layers of complexity between World War II and the individuals who served: how the war interrupted their lives, taught them certain skills, and, in some cases, haunted them.

Stephen M. Sloan is the director of the Institute for Oral History and associate professor of history at Baylor University.
