Overview

Shifty's War: The Authorized Biography of Sergeant Darrell "Shifty" Powers, the Legendary Sharpshooter from the Band of Brothers by Marcus Brotherton

A tale of heroism and adventure-a memoir about Sergeant Darrell "Shifty" Powers, a highly respected Band of Brothers soldier.

When he was a boy growing up in the remote mining town of Clinchco, Virginia, Shifty Powers's goal was to become the best rifle shot he could be. His father trained him to listen to the woods, to "see" without his eyes. Little did Shifty know his finely-tuned skills would one day save his life-and the lives of many of his friends.

Shifty's War is a tale of a soldier's blood-filled days fighting his way from the shores of France to the heartland of Germany, and the epic story of how one man's abilities as a sharpshooter, along with an engagingly unassuming personality, propelled him to a life greater than he could have ever imagined.

Great Book. Excellent. I can not describe in words how good this book is. This is a book that you can not put down. I started reading it and just could not stop reading. I have seen Band of Brothers and read a lot of books concerning Easy Company and this is the only book that made me cry. Shifty will be greatly missed by everyone. He was a wonderful person and a great soldier. I am still looking for other memoirs concerning Easy Company.
