FOOT SOLDIER - A COMBAT INFANTRYMAN'S WAR IN EUROPE. One of the most detailed, immediate accounts of WWII ever written. A detailed, intimate account of combat at the Roer, Battle of the Bulge, the Rhine, and on to the Elbe.

Click to EnlargeFOOT SOLDIER - A COMBAT INFANTRYMAN'S WAR IN EUROPE. by Roscoe C. Blunt, JR. Through the prism of ultimate victory, the greatest generation that fought World War II has been seen as triumphant. But the brutal reality of the war as endured by combat infantrymen has remained little documented. In Foot Soldier, Roscoe C. Blunt provides an all-too-rare glimpse into the experience of fighting at the Allied front. Nineteen-year-old "Rockie" arrived on the continent in November 1944, when burnt-out U.S. vehicles still littered the beaches. His 84th Infantry Division fought at the Roer, through the Battle of the Bulge, and at the crossing of the Rhine all the way to the Elbe; he was briefly taken prisoner by an SS Panzer unit. Drawing upon his numerous letters home and the journals he scrawled in foxholes and tents, he has given us one of the most detailed, immediate accounts of the Second World War ever written, a memoir sure to take its place among the classics of war literature.

Author Biography -- Roscoe C. Blunt, Jr., was the youngest soldier to be awarded the Expert Infantry Badge. He also received a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. After the war, he became an award-winning investigative journalist and author. He lives in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.
