Merriam Press World War 2 Memoir Series

This is the story of an inductee into the Army during World War II and his ventures from basic training into and through combat and assignment to postwar duties during which he remained a PFC.

It is a view of the war in Europe from the invasion of Africa through the postwar period until the occupation forces were established in Germany and the inductees brought home.

It refutes or adds to some stories by high ranking civilian officials and Army officers that have been published and tells the story as seen from a very low level.

It recognizes heroes and others without blatantly condemning anyone other than stating what actually happened by personal witness. The reader can draw his own conclusions regarding right or wrong.

The author offers this story as part of history and to show that with the best of publicized intentions the facts may vary from those reported. With the goal of obtaining personal recognition there have been situations to be recorded and evaluated against publicized stories written for profit or personal gain.

In so doing the author intends to offer entertaining reading and food for thought along with what really happened by his own views on the scenes in which he was involved.
