Over eleven million of us were in uniform in WWII; Army, Navy, Marines and Army Air Force. The ground Army was comprised of myself and six million other GIs. No two of us followed the same path through the war, nor were we given any choice in the roles we played. Chance was the custodian of our futures.
This book is not about the bigwigs: Roosevelt, Churchill, MacArthur, Eisenhower, Patton, etc. nor the absurd fictional heroes who win wars single handedly. It is a about us mundane mortals; the Army's enlisted men--privates, PFCs, corporals and sergeants--our adventures and misadventures.
