    highly recommended

    very informative book. as a history buff and a student of ww II it covered a subject i had never given much thought to. there are many facets to history, and this book explored one of the most ignored facets of that war. well written and east to read. more like a story than a text book type of approach on the subject.

    Sandshade's secret,prologe

    " What in the name of StarClan happened?" Nightbriar,a smoky gray tom,approched Gorgefur quitely. " Oh,these are our kits! Arent they lovely?" Nightbriar snorted. " I don't see them. " In embarrasment,Gorsefur stepped back to let the SummerClan medicine cat see them. " Why,they are lovely! Four kits! I'll name this one Tidekit ,this one Puddlekit, and this one Ivykit...." Gorgefur spoke the name of the special ginger she-kit who had a glint of rainbow in her eyes. " Sandkit!" A tortoise-shell Rainbelly ran up and Nightbriar slunk into the thorns. " Are those your kits? Who is the father?" Gorgefur muttered darkly to Rainbelly. " I am not telling you the information you need to find out all my secrets. Just one little fact—one of them is special." With that,Rainbelly picked up Tidekit and Ivykit,and Gorsefur brought Puddlekit & Sandkit. Rainbelly dropped the kits in the nursery,while Nightbriar watched with delight as one more kit named Marshkit came out,and the first four opened thier eyes.

    The author captures the unknown WWII legacy of infantryman fatig

    The author captures the unknown WWII legacy of infantryman fatigue as experienced by those that fought
     on the front lines and for whatever reason later left their post and deserted. The discussion of cases of men living a
    criminal lifestyle in Paris in early 1945 and the subsequent capture, trial, incarceration and demise tell of a story lost
    In WWII history books.  The book is great reading for the military professional, medical researchers studying PTSD,
     And other interested historical affectionados.  The author has gone to great lengths to detail his sources
    of research and investigation.  Must Read 5-stars.
