        This is written by Paul Boesch, a platoon leader in WWII. The book covers their march across France, Lux, etc towards the Siegfried Line and into the Huertgen Forest in 1944.

        This is a great book! His writing style is simple and honest, and is focused on his personal experience. He’s very matter-of-fact, and doesn’t come across as a “tough guy” just a regular guy thrust into the extraordinary. He shares his thoughts/fears, his frustration, his moments of thanks for surviving, and the camaraderie with his men. He sounds like a great officer who genuinely put his men before himself and went above and beyond what was expected of him.

        I’d strongly recommend giving this one a read.
