There is precious little on WWII in the librivox archive. I therefore dug up two public domain books that you might look at

1. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14764 The Grey Book by Johan M. Snoek, "A COLLECTION OF PROTESTS AGAINST ANTI-SEMITISM AND PERSECUTION OF JEWS ISSUED BY NON-ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCHES AND CHURCH LEADERS DURING HITLERS RULE"

2. https://archive.org/details/unitedstatesstra00cent The United States Strategic Bombing Surveys : European war, Pacific war

Any chance you might look at these?

The first book from gutenberg is copyrighted.
In the bibrec tab it says: Copyrighted. Read the copyright notice inside this book for details.
and inside the bookit says: Copyright (C) 1969 Johan M. Snoek.

I don't k
now about the second one for sure. it says it was produced by
"Air University (U.S.). Center for Aerospace Doctrine, Research, and Education"
but if this means that it is a US Government publication - some of which may indeed be PD - I don't know.
Cheers,
Ava.

This might help

It seems that Air university is only republishing an old government report. There is an email contact at NARA

I think the Air Force / War Department one should be OK.
Fiction, open sections mostly adventure in Australia: It Is Never too Late to Mend
Irish Home Rule Arguments: Handbook on Home Rule
Sci-Fi removing memories: Dr. Heidenhoff's Process
The Curious Lore of Precious Stones
