Overview

SUMMARY: This is the extraordinary memoir of the 22nd Infantry Regiment--a unit that Ernest Hemingway stayed with for five months. It describes the unit's historic WWII drive across France and the bloody Battle of the Hurtgen Forest, and relates a moving account of men who enlisted to fight in a just cause. Touching on the chaos of war and how accidental atrocities--such as the use of poison gas by American artillery on November 15, 1944--were narrowly averted, Soldier's Journal is a memoir rich in character, detail, and atmosphere.
