The Liberator: One World War II Soldier's 500-Day Odyssey from the Beaches of Sicily to the Gates of

The untold story of the bloodiest and most dramatic march to victory of the Second World War. Written with Alex Kershaw's trademark narrative drive and vivid immediacy, The Liberator traces the remarkable battlefield journey of maverick U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks through the Allied liberation of Europe—from the first landing in Italy to the final death throes of the Third Reich.Over five hundred bloody days, Sparks and his infantry unit battled from the beaches of Sicily through the mountains of Italy and France, ultimately enduring bitter and desperate winter combat against the die-hard SS on the Fatherland's borders. Having miraculously survived the long, bloody march across Europe, Sparks was selected to lead a final charge to Bavaria, where he and his men experienced some of the most intense street fighting suffered by Americans in World War II.And when he finally arrived at the gates of Dachau, Sparks confronted scenes that robbed the mind of reason—and put his humanity to the ultimate test.

 - Growing Up in a Foxhole (New Edition): A Foot Soldier Looks Back...Memoirs of a World War II Vet of the 45th Infantry Division with an Introduction by George Garin
Growing Up in a Foxhole (New Edition): A Foot Soldier Looks Back...Memoirs of a World War II Vet of the 45th Infantry Division with an Introduction by George

The engaging, humble and straightforward memoirs of a Vet of the fabled "Thunderbird" Division in World War II encompassing the last six months of the war. From attempting to hide his sight challenges and enlist in the USA, through the challenges of basic training, to the horrors and pathos of combat along with post war experiences in a defeated nation, Stan never fails to engage the reader with his true feelings and even an occasional bit of humor. Anyone interested in knowing what WWII was like for the "average" (whatever that it) GI will want to read this short book and will not be disappointed. From a reader of the first edition, "No boring rants about one battle after another. Just one soldier's very personal experience in his own words. Well written." And, from another, "You don't have to be a veteran or a military buff to enjoy this book. I am a grandmother and I was completely absorbed, going back into those war years and being reminded of what our boys went through."

 - Drawing Fire: A Pawnee, Artist, and Thunderbird in World War II
Drawing Fire: A Pawnee, Artist, and Thunderbird in World War

In 1940 Brummett Echohawk, an eighteen-year-old Pawnee boy, joined the Oklahoma National Guard. Within three years his unit, a tough collection of depression era cowboys, farmers, and more than a thousand Native Americans, would land in Europe--there to distinguish themselves as, in the words of General George Patton, "one of the best, if not the best division, in the history of American arms." During his service with the 45th Infantry, the vaunted Thunderbirds, Echohawk tapped the talent he had honed at Pawnee boarding school to document the conflict in dozens of annotated sketches.These combat sketches form the basis of Echohawk's memoir of service with the Thunderbirds in World War II. In scene after scene he re-creates acts of bravery and moments of terror as he and his fellow soldiers fight their way through key battles at Sicily, Salerno, and Anzio. Woven with Pawnee legend and language and quickened with wry Native wit, Drawing Fire conveys in a singular way what it was like to go to war alongside a band of Indian brothers. It stands as a tribute to those Echohawk fought with and those he lost, a sharply observed and deeply felt picture of men at arms--capturing for all time the enduring spirit and steadfast strength of the Native American warrior.

 - Medic!: How I Fought World War II with Morphine, Sulfa, and Iodine Swabs
Medic!: How I Fought World War II with Morphine, Sulfa, and Iodine

Lt. Gen. George S. Patton remarked that the “45th Infantry Division is one of the best, if not the best division that the American army has ever produced.” Such praise, however, came at a steep price, for the 45th saw some of the fiercest fighting in the European campaign—from Sicily to Anzio and from southern France to Germany—and racked up one of the highest casualty rates. Through it all, medic Robert “Doc Joe” Franklin—drafted in 1942 and thrust into combat with no specific training or knowledge for treating war wounds—soldiered on, fighting as hard to keep his men alive as the enemy fought to kill them. The story of his career as a frontline medic, one of the first memoirs written by an aid-man, is told here with simplicity, unflinching honesty, and grit. Studded with memorable vignettes—of a friend who “smells” the Germans long before they appear, the dog that acts as an artillery spotter, the lieutenant who can’t see beyond a few hundred feet—Franklin’s memoir documents the almost unbearable drama of ground gained and lives lost, as well as the terrible human toll of battle on himself, his comrades, and civilians quite literally caught in the crossfire. A rare look at the fight for lives laid on the line, Medic! brings to life the reality of wa...

 - Patton's Third Army at War
Patton's Third Army at War

This is the story of General George S. Patton's magnificent Third Army as it advanced across Nazi-occupied Europe and into Hitler's redoubt in the last year of World War II. As America’s own answer to Blitzkrieg, Third Army’s actions from the Normandy coast across France and Germany to Austria gave a new dimension to the term "fluid warfare." They only needed one general order—to seek out the enemy, trap, and destroy them. This they did, relentlessly overcoming every obstacle thrown in their way.Third Army’s story is one of the teamwork, of armor, infantry, and aircraft working together with a perfection that even amazed the Germans, who had always considered themselves the masters of the mobile offensive. Though Third Army is often remembered for its tank spearheads, like the 4th Armored Division, these pages also give credit to the brave infantry divisions which butted their heads against fortresses such as Metz with ultimate success. It is also the story of a triumph of administration as thousands of trucks carried forward the supplies so vital to keep the army on the move and fighting.When a German counteroffensive nearly burst through the U.S. lines in the Ardennes, it was Patton’s Third Army that turned on its heel and immediately drove in the “Bulge,” ending ...

 - Rather Die Fighting: A Memoir of World War II
Rather Die Fighting: A Memoir of World War

Frank Blaichman was sixteen years old when the war broke out. In 1942, the killings began in Poland. With his family and friends decimated by the roundups, Blaichman decided that he would rather die fighting; he set off for the forest to find the underground bunkers of Jews who had already escaped. Together they formed a partisan force dedicated to fighting the Germans. This is a harrowing, utterly moving memoir of a young Polish Jew who chose not to go quietly and defied the mighty German war machine during World War II.

 - The Final Crisis: Combat in Northern Alsace, January 1945
The Final Crisis: Combat in Northern Alsace, January

A multi-faceted book built around an intensely personal and vivid memoir of infantry combat in the last brutal winter of WWII. The author combines these carefully-verified recollections with an insightful description and analysis of the social dynamics within an incompletely-trained infantry platoon thrown into combat unexpectedly and prematurely in the face of Operation NORDWIND, the last German offensive on the Western Front in WWII. Framed by a comprehensive and detailed account of the US Seventh Army's tenacious struggle to halt a combined German force including Tiger tanks, Luftwaffe paratroopers, previously-undefeated SS mountain infantry, and the last of Germany's manpower reserves, The Final Crisis provides credit to the American infantrymen and tankers who halted the last threat to the Western Alliance. Long overshadowed by the Ardennes Offensive, the so-called "Battle of the Bulge," which barely preceded it, the struggle to halt the NORDWIND offensive comes to life at every level from foxhole to field army. 8.5" x 11" format; 25 original maps; 20 original pen and ink drawings, rendered by Colonel (then-Lieutenant) Ted MacKechnie, 42d Infantry Division, WWII; index

 - Innocent Killer
Innocent Killer

Unlike most war stories, this is a uniquely intimate memoir that interweaves the story of a young man’s life-affirming childhood on a California ranch with shattering frontline combat experiences in Germany during the last 42 days of World War II. Through a young boy’s eyes, the formative impact of parents in love, life and death on a working ranch, strange relatives, loss of friends in the Japanese relocation, and first loves are reported with the same intensity as when they were first absorbed, unknowingly, as emotional preparation for survival on a battlefield. As an 18-year-old radio operator and trained sniper with the 86th Blackhawk Division, he kills his first German soldier, learns to “hit and run” with Patton, is surrounded and rescued, takes prisoners, lives with the threat of a bullet in the back from a “friendly” enemy, strays into the horror of Dachau, and finds love in a French hospital.
