To Honor Our Fallen: Purple Hearts of America's Servicemen 

This page contains the stories of servicemen killed in action in the European Theater of Operation (ETO) in World War II.  This includes those killed in the North African and Italian Campaigns as well as the Western and Central European Campaigns.  I have divided the World War II section into European and Pacific Theater sections because of the size and scope of the war.  In all, almost 400,000 Americans were killed in action during World War II.  American involvement officially lasted from 7 December 1941 to September 1945, even though US forces were fighting and dying both before and after these dates.
