click to enlarge Bowen, Robert M., FIGHTING WITH THE SCREAMING EAGLES: With the 101st Airborne from Normandy to Bastogne. NEW copy. Hardcover with dust jacket. (Mechanicsburg, PA: Stackpole Books, 2001). Bibliography, Roll of Honor, 256 pages.

~~~ "Robert Bowen found himself unexpectedly assigned to the 401st Glider Infantry Regiment, shortly after joining the US Army. His service with the 101st begins with intensive training in North Carolina, where he forges friendships with fellow company members and prepares for combat in Europe. Transported to Britain, Bowen witnesses first-hand the devastation in the cities and is bemused by the wartime strictures of his new environment. As training continues, the division sense that something important awaits them, and that -- as prophesied by one of the men -- 'Uncle Sam needs something for his money'. Shortly after, they receive their brief on Operation Overlord. As reserve to the 4th Division at D-Day, Bowen and fellow division members storm ashore amid the chaos on Utah Beach. They experience the ultimate test: picking their way through unfamiliar terrain littered with minefields and hidden snipers, while keeping track of ever-changing commands. Bowen is injured on D+1, but goes on to participate in the perilous airborne assault over Holland, where as platoon leader during the fighting he is forced to make vital decisions in the face of mounting casualties. When exhausted troops are moved to the Ardennes to participate in the Battle of the Bulge, Bowen falls victim to a second injury which leaves him at the mercy of advancing German troops. He becomes a POW just days before Christmas 1944, when the 'trip through hell' truly begins. Written shortly after the war -- but never before published -- Bowen's narrative is immediate, direct and compelling. His account, one of the few by a member of a glider regiment, is a brutal insight into the battlefields of World War II and a vivid recreation of just what life was like in an elite unit. From the horror of D-Day and the despair of captivity, to personal recollections of ordinary men in an extraordinary conflict, this memoir tells the story of one man's total war."

click to enlarge Burgett, Donald R., SEVEN ROADS TO HELL: A Screaming Eagle at Bastogne. NEW copy. Hardcover with dust jacket. (NY: Ballantyne Books, 1999). Maps, photographs, 225 pages.

~~~ From Kirkus Reviews: "A stirring combat memoir by a WWII paratrooper of the elite 101st Airborne Division, the famed Screaming Eagles. Burgett writes here of his experiences during the heroic stand of small US forces at the strategic Belgian town of Bastogne, crossroads of seven converging, passable roads in the heavy forests of the Ardennes that the Germans needed to capture to ensure the steady stream of men, machines, and supplies necessary for a quick victory in the Battle of the Bulge. Burgett had already survived the carnage of D-day and Arnhem to become one of the "old men" (aged 19) in the successful defense of Bastogne, an epic of courage, fortitude, and spirit that stopped the huge, powerful, armored German army short of the vital port of Antwerp. Surrounded by overwhelming enemy man- and fire-power, the outnumbered light infantry paratroopers plus small elements of the 10th Armored Division and field artillery battalions held the line for weeks. American forces paid a heavy cost in lives and wounded until relieved by General Patton's Third Army attacking the German flank. Burgett lost many of his buddies and original comrades in the bloody struggle -— he himself was wounded three times -— but the troops never lost the fighting spirit of their heroic leader, Brigadier General Anthony C. ("Nuts") McAuliffe, who refused to surrender in a very dark time. Burgett's spare prose captures the gritty reality of subzero temperatures; rough, snow-covered terrain; shortages of food, adequate clothes, heavy weapons, and ammunition. He gives the reader a sense of actually being there day to day with the squad and platoon, capturing the tension, excitement, and drama of their seeminglydoomed situation, even though the reader may know the final outcome. Burgett bypasses the generals' war-game vantage point to give us a front-line soldier's blood-and-guts eyewitness account of a decisive WWII battle."

Kershaw, Alex, THE LONGEST WINTER: The Battle of the Bulge and the Epic Story of World War II's Most Decorated Platoon. NEW copy, hardcover with dust jacket. Maps, photographs, notes, bibliography, index, 326 pages.

~~~ It was a cold December morning in 1944, deep in the Ardennes forest of Belgium. Eighteen men of a small intelligence platoon commanded by twenty-year-old lieutenant Lyle Bouck were huddled in their foxholes, desperately trying to keep warm. Suddenly the early morning silence was broken by the roar of a huge artillery bombardment. Hitler had launched his bold and risky offensive against the Allies - his "last gamble" - and the American platoon was facing the main thrust of the entire German assault." "Vastly outnumbered, the platoon repulsed three German assaults in a fierce day-long battle to defend a strategically vital hill. Only when Bouck's men had run out of ammunition did they surrender." "But their long winter was just beginning." As POWs, Bouck's platoon experienced an ordeal far worse than combat - surviving in captivity with trigger-happy German guards, Allied bombing raids, and a starvation diet. While hundreds of other captured Americans in German POW camps were either killed or died of disease, the men of Bouck's platoon miraculously survived - all of them - and returned home after the war. More than thirty years later, when President Carter recognized the unit's "extraordinary heroism" and the U.S. Army approved combat medals for all eighteen men, they became America's most decorated platoon of World War II.

~~~ Spencer Wurst saw it all. As a paratrooper of the 82nd Airborne from 1943 to 1944, he was bound to. Italy, Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge changed him from a greenhorn to a seasoned platoon leader. Wurst’s exciting, fast-paced, cleanly written combat memoir does a superb job of transporting the reader back to the crucial phases of the war in Europe.
~~~ From parachuting into Normandy with tracers whizzing past his face to meals of “boiled chicken-in-a-helmet,” Descending from the Clouds packs in an astonishing amount of detail. Wurst’s writing contains a rhythmic quality that surpasses most memoirs. For instance, the passage on how he and his unit suited up for the Normandy invasion is as engaging as his striking description of shooting a German soldier from two feet away.
~~~ You’ll be by Wurst’s side through his entire tour, from training in Georgia to the frozen Ardennes, where he served at point man on his 20th birthday. Wurst earned two purple hearts and a Silver Star. Sixty years later, he says, he thanks God every day for seeing him through it all."

~~~ At dawn on Friday 1 September 1939 the Germans launched their land, sea and air assault on Poland. The World became aware of the awesome power of Hitler's Third Reich and the limitless and ruthless nature of his ambition.
~~~ The Blitzkrieg (Lightning War) attack, spearheaded by Panzers, took the German forces to the gates of Warsaw in a week. The vital port of Danzig fell, crushed by naval and air bombardment and land assaults. The Polish Air Force, out-numbered and out-gunned, were driven from the skies. In a month Warsaw fell amid great bloodshed and in six weeks the Poles were defeated.
~~~ The speed of the German conquest was matched by its brutality. Lives and property meant little to the invaders and civilians and POWs were summarily executed. Jews received particular attention and these atrocities were not just perpetrated by the SS but soldiers of the Wehrmacht.
~~~ Blitzkrieg Unleashed is told in the words of those who conquered Poland, thanks to the author's research into letters, diaries, unpublished accounts, official documents and histories and newspapers.

click to enlarge Burgett, Donald R., BEYOND THE RHINE: A Screaming Eagle in Germany. NEW copy. (Novato, CA: Presidio Press, 2001). Maps, photographs, 169 pages.

~~~ "Donald R. Burgett and the rest of the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne had fought long and hard since the Normandy invasion. They fought through seventy-two days of continuous combat in Holland, and thirty days of frozen hell in Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. War weary, tired, and bloodied, Burgett and other Screaming Eagles of A Company were heading for the last battle, the drive that would carry them through Alsace, Germany's Ruhr Valley, the Rhineland, Austria, and the end of the war in Europe. The last push across Germany did not hold the full-scale fanatic resistance the U.S. command had expected, but rather, small pockets of die-hard Nazis unwilling to admit that they had lost. It became clear why some did not wish to surrender. Burgett and the other American soldiers discovered forced labor camps of half-starved Poles, Russians, Czechs, and Jews; men, women, and children all forced to labor for the cause of Germany, or die. Burgett and his men liberated four Nazi concentration camps where inmates were starved, brutally and systematically tortured, medically and surgically experimented on, and finally gassed and cremated. Burgett writes: 'German guards were still forcing inmates to stoke the furnaces with human bodies as we tore through the barbed-wire enclosures. We witnessed atrocities that were beyond human comprehension.' The Americans fought on from the Black Forest in Bavaria, to Berchtesgaden, where VE day found the Screaming Eagles finally at rest in the Eagle's Nest, Hitler's fabled mountaintop retreat. Certainly now the hard charging paratroopers could return home to enjoy the fruits of their victory, bloodied but proud, to take up family life with loved ones in a world they fought to keep free. But the war against Japan still raged, however, and the 101st was one of two airborne divisions alerted for redeployment to the Pacific. August 1945 brought atomic relief to Burgett and millions more around the world with the surrender of Japan. On New Year's Eve, 1945, Sergeant Burgett finally returned to his home in Detroit, still just twenty years old."

Collins, Lawrence D., M.D., THE 56th EVAC HOSPITAL: Letters of a WWII Army Doctor. NEW copy, still in shrinkwrap. Hardcover in dust jacket. University of North Texas Press, 1995. 40 b&w photos, map, bibliography, index, 352 pages.

~~~Collins arrived in North Africa in 1943 as a member of the 56th hospital unit, which hailedfrom Baylor Medical College in Dallas, and eventually wound up in Bizerte, Tunisia. His letters to his wife and mother, often accented by wit or irony, first tell about his military and travel experiences and discuss books he is reading. Then the 56th crosses the Mediterranean to Italy and receives its first real combat experience, the most rugged part of it consisting of 73 days at the Anzio beachhead. Shelling and bombing become so intense that several patients go AWOL from the hospital and return to their units on the front line because they feel they will be safer there. Although a physician, Collins has to do a considerable bit of surgery; his work with gas gangrene proves especially interesting. Moreover, his descriptions of a Benedictine monastery above Pompeii and of other sites add interest to his engaging letters.

~~~ ‘Where is the RAF?’ was the oft-quoted question asked by soldiers waiting on the beach at Dunkirk, to where they had retreated following the German blitzkrieg through northern France, and where they were now being pounded by the Luftwaffe. The air forces were there, as Norman Franks proves, detailing the outstanding achievements of the Allied pilots who had earlier had easy victories over the Polish, Dutch and Belgian air forces. The RAF’s achievement reminds us just how close Britain came to disaster in June 1940.

~~~ After the long winter of the Phoney War the invasion of the Low Countries and France by Hitler’s rampaging armies threw the World into crisis. Chamberlain’s Government fell, Churchill became Prime Minister. France was humiliated, the British Expeditionary Force was only saved by the miracle of Dunkirk but many men and huge amounts of equipment were lost to the Blitzkrieg. England trembled but the invasion never came.
~~~ Philip Warner graphically recounts the momentous events of that terrible period thanks to his painstaking research and skillful writing. He demonstrates how the under trained and ill-equipped British forces gallantly but futilely resisted the German land and air onslaught. He emphasizes the understated contribution of the French. This book provides a fresh and invaluable explanation of the military and political events of that extraordinary campaign, which continued on after Dunkirk.

"This is the first biography of the Army general who, after achieving greatness in the very highest posts in his own service, went on to become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and then Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, during one of the Cold War's most potentially explosive periods. A quiet, unassuming young man from a small Pennsylvania manufacturing town, Lemnitzer endured serving as a low-ranking lieutenant for fifteen years in some of the U.S. Army's most obscure posts. Yet eight years after finally becoming a captain, he was a general, the principal planner of the invasion of North Africa, and deputy chief of staff of the 15th Army Group in Italy. Never lacking for physical courage, he led, with Mark Clark, one of World War II's most celebrated cloak-and-dagger missions, a dangerous submarine trip behind German lines in North Africa. Later, disguised as a civilian, he slipped into France and Switzerland to help negotiate the surrender of a million German troops fighting in Italy. During the Korean War, Lemnitzer commanded the 7th Infantry Division and subsequently was commander in chief of the Far East Command. Toward the end of his distinguished career, he was at the peak of his profession - Army chief of staff and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Eisenhower and then Kennedy. He gracefully overcame being unfairly blamed for the debacle at the Bay of Pigs to serve brilliantly as Supreme Allied Commander in Europe.

Begun in the Ukraine in 1941 and finally finished in Capri in 1943, the manuscript escaped time and time again discovery and inevitable destruction by the authorities. Hidden by a Russian peasant from the Gestapo on the russian front in 1941, worked on in Poland and while on the Smolensk front, it was carried by Malaparte in the lining of his sheepskin coat as he went from Poland to Finland. On leaving Helsinki he entrusted for safe keeping separate parts of the manuscript to Spanish and Romanian diplomats who were his friends. Several chapters, written in Berlin, were hidden by friends in the German capital at great danger to themselves. Some of the last chapters were successfully hidden in the double soles of his shoes when he was arrested by the Fascist authorities and sent to prison in Rome."

Showalter, Dennis, PATTON AND ROMMEL: Men of War in the Twentieth Century. NEW copy. Hardcover with dust jacket. (NY: Berkeley Caliber, 2005) 'A History Book Club Exclusive Edition', with an 'Exclusive History Book Introduction by the Author'. Index, 441 pages.
~~~ From Publishers Weekly: "One of the most distinguished American historians of WWII returns with an outstanding parallel biography of George Patton and Erwin Rommel. The research is thorough, the quality of the writing superb. The two men came from substantially different backgrounds--Patton from an upper-class family with a distinguished record in the Confederate Army, Rommel from staunchly middle-class Wurttemburgers barely eligible to send their son into the Kaiser's army. Both saw combat in WWI (Rommel far more than Patton), spent a frustrating interwar period (in which Rommel fared better than Patton) and rose to high distinction as experts in mobile warfare in WWII. Today, each is more admired in the other's country, and the author argues persuasively that they had different ambitions in their pursuit of mobility: Patton lived a cavalryman's image of antique heroism a century out-of-date, while Rommel was the consummate technical expert (except in logistics). They certainly rank together as two of the most written-about, and two of the most accomplished, military commanders of the century, and Showalter, the former head of the Society for Military History, ranks as a scholar who has done them justice, making two complex men and a vast panorama of military history remarkably accessible for experts and lay readers alike.

~~~ From Publishers Weekly: "Written in an unusual style by the son of a G.I., this episodic WWII chronicle covers the career of the author's father, Joe Sacco (no relation to the comics artist), from his induction into the U.S. Army and stateside training during 1943, overseas deployment to Great Britain in early 1944, and his experiences in combat and behind the lines at Normandy through the end of the war. The account of the liberation of Dachau concentration camp, in late April 1945, comprises only one short chapter in the book. Although the narrative is first-person, the author's father is given neither co-authorship, nor "as told to" credit. This peculiar style limits the impact of some of the writing. "They say that war is comprised of one surreal moment after another, millions of them all strung together until nothing is real anymore except for one's own mortality"-loses some punch if linked back to "a director, writer, and composer living in Los Angeles," as this debut author is credited. Yet the extensive reconstructed (or invented?) dialogue is largely successful: Sacco's barracks life and period profanity make for one of the more accurate and compelling recreations of the G.I. experience in recent years. The book is particularly good on Sacco's first few days in the service, combat action in a small German city in March 1945, and on the liberation of Dachau, but readers expecting extensive tales of armed conflict will be disappointed. While not a classic among World War II memoirs, nor particularly historically significant, this odd duck quacks convincingly."
