Publisher's Summary

National Book Award Winner Paul Fussell tells the breathtaking story of WWII from the young soldiers' points of view. WWII was not the glorified picture it is often depicted to be. For the American soldier it was a tiring, emotional, and gruesome experience. Fussell's extensive details and insight help to make this story come alive.

    "Infantryman's war"

    An excellent account of America's role in Europe during World War II, much of it based on the author's own experience as an infantryman. If your understanding of World War II comes from watching movies, this is a must read book.

    "Some old, same old"

    If you have read Stephen A.'s books on WWII, you will find nothing new here.
