About this title

Synopsis:

Volume III of the To Honor Our Veterans trilogy explores the experiences of the Cajun GIs from 1944 to 1945, as they landed ashore in Normandy, trekked across France and Germany, to reach victory in Europe. Whether strafing locomotives or blowing up bridges, fighting from foxholes or in the snow, treating the wounded or leading men into combat, the Cajun veterans featured in this book contributed to nearly every phase of the European Theater of Operations. Most had the benefit of growing up in a French-speaking community in south Louisiana, and their bi-lingual ability was a major contribution to the Allied cause. Among these Cajuns is handful of French-speaking GIs who were chosen for Special Forces Operations in France. The harrowing tales of their actions behind enemy lines remained in the dark for nearly sixty years. Now their story can be told.

Review:

No better time for Theriot to pen his excellent study of the role that Cajuns played during World War II. --Warren A. Perrin, President, CODOFIL
