About this title


A Michigan farm boy with an eighth grade education is drafted into the Army during WW II, and becomes a man on the Pacific battlefields of Kwajalein, Leyte and Okinawa. Wounded four times, he received both the Silver and Bronze Star. With a keen sense of humor, Vernon Heppe tells about growing up on the farm and his adjustment to becoming a soldier. He describes infantry combat in vivid detail and the memories that remain.

From the Author:

I am pleased with the comments from Vernon Heppe's fellow soldiers. His platoon Sgt. for all the battles was Arthur H. Nebe. In a 1997 letter he states, "Vernon's book is accurate. We saw these things happen with our own eyes and we all experienced the same dangers." Mr. Nebe goes on to say, "The Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) was a highly valued infantry weapon during WW II. It took a special type of soldier to make this weapon valuable and effective and Vernon was that type of soldier."

In a 1998 letter to Vernon Heppe, Don H. Vicini, another fellow soldier says, "Yes, I liked your book and have read it twice. I enjoyed it very much. Don't know if the people of today will truly understand what the foot soldier went through, or could even care. You told your story, which should be a part of America's history. I can look in a mirror and know what your thoughts and agony were then and still remain today. God Bless you."
