A REAL AMERICAN CLASSIC. In his candid and richly illustrated autobiography, Harlan Wien recounts his life in his own quirky, straightforward and unpretentious way. My life story is a classic American tale, says Mr. Wien. It s filled with familiar portions of success and sadness, laughter and disappointment. Ultimately, I was devoted to doing anything I had to do to give my family a good life. Beginning, naturally enough, with a childhood spent running and leaping through the farmlands around Colfax, North Dakota, Mr. Wien takes readers on a journey through the heart of America. Then, World War II intervenes, changing Harlan s life forever. As part of the 80th Infantry Division of General Patton s Third Army, Mr. Wien landed on Omaha Beach and participated in the brutal work of rescuing the world from tyranny. But, good fortune and providence spared him through a variety of dangerous missions, scattered misadventures and brushes with death.
