Foxhole is a deeply personal story of a young man's experience in World War II. George Mullins takes us on his journey as he travels from his isolated home in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia to the beach in Normandy as part of the Allied invasion, then landing in a glider in the liberation of Holland, next came the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium, and on to the occupation of Germany. Mullins shares his thoughts as he fires his machine gun from freezing foxholes, sees the devastation of war, and develops deep friendships with comrades in arms. In these thoughts, observations, experiences, and fears; the day-to-day reality of war comes to life.
