Overview

The Nazis caught him, but they couldn't hold him-a gripping WWII memoir from a D-Day paratrooper and American hero.

A paratrooper in the 101st Airborne, James Sheeran was just a kid when he floated into Normandy on D-Day-only to be captured soon afterward by the Germans. Escaping from a POW train bound for Germany, Sheeran traveled behind enemy lines in France, eventually fighting alongside the French Resistance.

After hooking up with Patton's advancing army, he fought admirably in Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge, and was ultimately awarded the Bronze Star, a Purple Heart, and the Chevalier of the Order of the Legion of Honor.

Sheeran's breathtaking chronicle of his capture, daring escape, fierce guerilla resistance, and valor under fire is an unforgettable testament to the spirit of the American soldier.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers will marvel at the heroics of this 19-year-old paratrooper after he floated down on D-Day into Nazi-occupied France. In this account of courage and endurance, Sheeran (who died in 2007) was a private with the 101st Airborne when he was captured by the enemy, rounded up with other POWs and marched through American bombs and aircraft strafing to a German camp, chatted up by Axis Sally, and herded before the French in Paris for Gestapo newsreels. He covers it all: the starvation, the exhaustion and hopelessness of captivity, and the suffocating boxcars of the prisoner train. Eventually, the plucky private and his pals escape into the dark and freedom. Each of Sheeran's chapters is devoted to a grander feat of daring than the last—joining the Resistance, battling the Germans toe-to-toe, repeating the same feat his father performed in the previous war. This is a moving portrait of a humble man who was awarded a Bronze Star and named a chevalier of France's Order of the Legion of Honor, going on after the war to become a respected New Jersey politician. (Feb.)
AMERICA IN WWII
JAMES SHEERAN, a founding member of the 101st Airborne Division, parachuted into France on the eve of D-Day in a story we have all come to know and savor….but the drop went poorly for him. He was captured, escaped and fought with the Maquis French Resistance before returning to his outfit to fight in Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Ardennes. For those who have read dozens of accounts of D-Day or the 101st, the most memorable, worthwhile portions of the book deal with Sheeran's prisoner experience (which inevitably makes one question the choice of title). Much of the book reads like transcribed oral history. This makes for a brisk read. But the book seeks to include as many events as possible, while exploring few of them with much insight. This results in a lack of introspection for many key moments. It may be that more detail would have been added if Sheeran had lived past 2007. For many, any account of a 101st veteran has the same import as a Dead Sea scroll, and they will be pleased to read another Screaming Eagle's perspective on the war, however brief his combat time was. No Surrender will satisfy them. Others will find it more rewarding to read other, more comprehensive memoirs of these battles. —Thomas Mullen Flemington, New Jersey

    A great book

    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.

    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.
