    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.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Liberator?

    Excellent account of US Army Officer Felix Sparks' WWII journey. Sparks joins the Army in the interwar years, serves his term, and decides to go to law school. Unfortunately WWII broke out and Felix was called back into service. This is his story, his journey from the training; to the beaches of Sicily all the Infantry way to Dachau concentration camp. What an outstanding man and officer who endured way more than any one man should have to in the course of a war.


    What does Fred Sanders bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed the narrator's rendition of General George S. Patton Jr.
