9781580800389: Company Commander: The Classic Infantry Memoir of World War II

As a newly commisioned Captain of a veteran Army regiment, MacDonald's first combat was war at its most hellish―the Battle of the Bulge. In this plain-spoken but eloquent narrative, we live each minute at MacDonald's side, sharing in all of combat's misery, terror, and drama. How this green commander gains his men's loyalty in the snows of war-torn Europe is one of the great, true, unforgettable war stories of all time.

About the Author:

The late Charles B. MacDonald also wrote A Time for Trumpets and other books. After the war (in which he was awarded the Purple Heart and the the Silver Star) he became and official Army Historian, retiring as Deputy Chief Historian in 1979. He died in 1990.

Review:

"Memoirs of politics and wars usually become less interesting with the passing of time. 'Company Commander' is an exception...It speaks to the younger generations with almost the same immediacy as it did to the generation of the Second World War." (Ronald H. Spector, from his Introduction)

"Nowhere is there a more honest, unassuming portrayal of the hopes and dreams and fears of a young infantry captain..." (Saturday Review)

"Impressive." (The New York Times)
