    This Kind of War is a monumental study of the conflict that began in June 1950. Successive generations of U.S. military officers have considered this book an indispensable part of their education. T. R. Fehrenbach's narrative brings to life the harrowing and bloody battles that were fought up and down the Korean Peninsula.

    Charles Fred Smith says: "Korean War Classic - The Good, the Bad, the Ugly"

    From July 10, 1943, the date of the Allied landing in Sicily, to May 8, 1945, when victory in Europe was declared - the entire time it took to liberate Europe - no regiment saw more action, and no single platoon, company, or battalion endured worse, than the ones commanded by Felix Sparks, who had entered the war as a greenhorn second lieutenant of the 157th "Eager for Duty" Infantry Regiment of the 45th "Thunderbird" Division. Sparks and his fellow Thunderbirds fought longest and hardest to defeat Hitler.

    If you could sum up The Liberator in three words, what would they be?

    Author allegation the shooters used submachine guns is contrary to the facts. The weapons were semi-automatic


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Liberator?

    One of the best books on one soldier's experiences in WWII.
