About the Author:

Born and raised in Seward County Nebraska, Edward Walsh left the family farm in 1942 and became a member of the 242nd Field Artillery Battalion. Following the war, he attended Nebraska Technical School and operated a service station for 25 years. Married with two sons, seven grandchildren, and six great grandchildren, Edward, now 85, wrote the account of his military service at the request of his family. With the help of his wife Jeanne and grandson Vince, two different 242nd websites were created. Today, Ed corresponds via email with those interested in the 242nd and its members.

Review:

Fantastic Work for it's GenreByM. Gardneron May 9, 2009Format: Paperback|Verified PurchaseIf you are looking for a personal history written by a common soldier describing their experiences serving the United States Army in WWII, Mr. Edward Walsh has a fine title for your collection! Mr. Walsh takes you to the beginning of his experience - you will journey with him from induction to boot camp, artillery training to shipping overseas, his days in England to first combat in the ETO, from the push into Germany to occupation days at wars end. The WWII experience, at the individual level, was quite varied. Mr. Walsh let's us see it all, as he saw it, during his days with the 242nd Field Artillery Battalion. In the genre of WWII personal histories, especially if you are interested in the US artillery during this period, this book is a top choice. A very enjoyable read!
