The National Archives record series World War II Oral Histories, Interviews and Statements, ca. April 1942–ca. December 1946 has been a transcription mission for the last few months where Citizen Archivists have transcribed more than 6,800 pages. Each transcribed word is now searchable in the catalog, and their stories even more accessible to the public.
Most of the events described in these records took place in the Pacific, from the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to the surrender and occupation of Japan.
