Summary
Robert Humphrey presents a stirring view of combat from the perspective of the common soldier. He personally retraced the path of the 99th through Belgium and Germany and conducted extensive interviews with more than three hundred surviving veterans. The memories are remarkable for their clarity, many of which are painful and long repressed. These narratives, seamlessly woven to create a collective biography, offer a gritty reenactment of World War II from the enlisted man's point of view, revealing the phsyical and psychological hardships soldiers endured and how they coped with them
