9780060763411: One Soldier's Story: A Memoir

Before he became one of America's most respected statesmen, Bob Dole was an average citizen serving heroically for his country. The bravery he showed after suffering near-fatal injuries in the final days of World War II is the stuff of legend. Now, for the first time in his own words, Dole tells the moving story of his harrowing experience on and off the battlefield, and how it changed his life.

Speaking here not as a politician but as a wounded G.I., Dole recounts his own odyssey of courage and sacrifice, and also honors the fighting spirit of the countless heroes with whom he served. Heartfelt and inspiring, One Soldier's Story is the World War II chronicle that America has been waiting for.

About the Author:

Bob Dole served in the U.S. Senate for twenty-seven years and was the Republican Leader for twelve years. He was the Chairman of the Republican National Committee under the Presidency of Richard Nixon, the 1976 Republican nominee for Vice President with Gerald Ford, and the 1996 Republican nominee for President. He was also the Chairman of the National World War II Memorial.

From AudioFile:

Listening to Bob Dole's personal story, a sobering reminder of the heroism and sacrifices of American servicemen and women during WWII, is visceral and immediate. Severely injured by enemy fire in Italy, Dole returned home to wage a heroic personal war, finally conquering life-threatening injuries and permanent disabilities. Narrator Paul Hecht follows Dole's career from law school to politics and his distinguished career in the U.S. Senate. Hecht's narration movingly captures Dole's feelings as he relates the saga of the senator's defense of his country and anguishing battle to live a full and meaningful life--although not the one he had planned.
