Publisher's Summary

Lance Dale Robinson dreamed of one day owning his own ranch. Born and raised in a small town in Wyoming, ranching was all he’d ever known, and it was all he ever wanted to do. But on his way to achieving that dream, WWII got in the way. 

He was a heavy machine gunner for Company H of the 313th Infantry. He landed on Normandy Beach six days after D-Day, and he tells a story of wading through bodies like seaweed to get onto land. He was part of the Battle of the Bulge, where he was almost court-martialed for thinking his sergeant’s life was more important than his weapon. He received a Silver Star, a Bronze Star, and a British Military Medal. 

When he returned home after his service, he went back into ranching. During his career, Dale worked with the University of Wyoming and Colorado State University to improve artificial insemination of cows. He traveled and lectured about the impacts that were being made in the process, and he helped advance science and ranching. This is the story of Dale's life in Wyoming and in WWII.

WHY?

As with a good number of military history audiobooks, this narrator is unable to pronounce not only military terms, but common city or country names. Perhaps he is Croation attempting to learn English? It just ruins the story when the narrator pronounces words not quite as well as a youngster, perhaps 7 years of age in a personal history of the war. Again, this is not unusual!

PLEASE convince Dick Hill to come out of retirement!
