As World War II recedes into history, and the generation that fought it slowly leaves us, photographer Robert D. Anderson has embarked on an incredible project of commemoration. The portraits featured in A Time to Fight present contemporary images of World War II veterans alongside actors who participate in historical reenactments of the major events of the war. Featuring soldiers who were involved in major operations like Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge, and more, the book reveals the personal stories of the war, as veterans share their memories of their experiences—some for the first time in decades—as the images of the actors help us imagine them as the young men and women they were, risking everything in the fight for their country. An unforgettable document of a time when the world was in the balance, A Time to Fight is a fitting appreciation of a generation."
