This scientist used imaging techniques to rescue sound from the Nuremberg trials

"Here's something you don't hear every day: a Supreme Court justice grilling the top brass of the Nazi Party in court. But archivists are working to digitize thousands of old audio recordings of the Nuremberg trials, which will then be released to the public, likely in 2020."

Guadalcanal was a campaign, not a battle.

Other than that I hope this new work removes more tired myths than it perpetuates.

The author and reviewer also seem unaware of the vast oral history resources still to be plumbed out there, many of which D.M. Giangreco and I used in _Eyewitness Pacific Theater_ (Sterling 2008). But it takes work to find them, read them, and organize the information.
