Barbara Gibby's passion for documenting the lives of family members is only surpassed by her unerring sense of history. In this exciting narrative, she faithfully follows Uncle Ted from the day he was drafted into the army in 1941 to the end of WWII. During this young G.I.'s tour of duty he had several assignments. He served as a gunner with the Air Corps in B-17s as well as driving a fast truck for the Red Ball Express, which was the hot line transportation outfit that delivered vital supplies to the front lines in Europe. But in November 1944 Ted was on his way to England, and only one month later, parachuted into the Siegfried Line at the Belgium-German border. As soon as he touched the ground, he found himself in one of the bloodiest battles of the European Theatre of War, The Battle of the Bulge. For the next five months he would chronicle the worst, terror-filled experiences of his life and this is his story, a true reflection of an American G.I.
