Merriam Press World War 2 Memoir. We join Sergeant Angier and his men of the 399th Infantry Regiment, 100th Infantry Division, in the Vosges Mountains of France, as they advance towards Alsace in the face of bitter and determined German resistance. Finally, they take Bitche, stronghold on the famous Maginot Line, enter Germany itself, and taste the fruits of victory on the enemy’s soil. What makes this an extraordinary book is the insight it gives into the hearts and minds of the “dogfaces” who bore the brunt of the fighting. This is a book alive with drama, told with understanding and a keen sense of humor, and in the down-to-earth language of the soldier. You will be with Angier from his first arrival in camp to the victory celebration, and will come to a greater understanding of what war means to the human beings who are caught up in its fury.
