I like WWII books and other war books written in the first person, about the actual events that happened to them. This is one of those books. James Sheeran tells his story about jumping over Normandy on D-day, being captured by the Germans, escaping the POW camp and re-entering the war to fight the Germans again in the Battle of the Bulge at Bastonge, Belgium and Foy. Sheerans journey follows many of the same battles as the iconic book and movies series "Band of Brothers", but the story told in this book is nothing like the "Band of Brothers" story.
In closing, a unique, courageous, and historical journey that any one who enjoys history would enjoy. I would highly recommend this book.

    Fantastic

    Since I was a member of 101, I've always wondered about their history in WW 11, now I know. This is a must read book, for people who want to know about our service men and women, and how they thought and what America meant to them. If you read it you"ll know.

    Great book

    Jimmy and Bernie, against all odds, escape their captors and rejoin their unit to fight in the Battle of the Buldge. This was a great read.

    Top of the list!

    Bravery, amidst dark hours of uncertainty kept me turning the pages. Jimmy had much to overcome and the bravery to share his most personal memoirs with us. A must read for those who enjoy nonfiction WWII events that changed lives forever.

    Incredible

    I could not put this book down! I have read many books relating to the atrocities of Japanese POW's and the hereoism of American soldiers but this book showed the true grit of our American troops!
