A book titled
We Were There: An Eyewitness History of the Twentieth Century
(The Overlook Press, $30), edited by Robert Fox is a collection of stories from different people who escaped the Titanic, fought in the trenches, spent hard time in prison camps, met the Beatles, saw the mushroom cloud and went to the moon. The idea of grouping a bunch of eyewitness historical accounts makes for a fun read. This selection is edited by Robert Fox.
