13.jpg (5868 octets)They Were All Young Kids by Aaron Elson

From the Author
The story of Jim Flowers, a brash young lieutenant from Dallas whose courage and sacrifice helped turn the tide in one of the bloodiest battles of the Normandy campaign, is taught to French schoolchildren. Yet it is virtually unknown in the United States. I have been privileged to interview at length the surviving members of Flowers' ill-fated platoon, and have been deeply moved by their account.

15.jpg (6771 octets)Roll Me Over : An Infantryman's World War II by Raymond Gantter

Marvelous WWII memoir by an infantryman, albeit a highly literate and sensitive one, who recorded his impressions via letters to his wife. This is a remarkable document, far more real than many a self-glamorizing memoir by persons of higher rank, or historian's reconstruction.  MilitaryReadingList Reviewer.
