Book Description

Sept. 18 2002 Warrior (Book 56)
The ETO is seen by many as the major theater of World War II (1939-1945), with more infantry regiments serving there than any other. This title follows one soldier ("Joseph") as he is drafted in February 1941, trains with the 22d Infantry in the United States and then ships to England in January 1944. On D-Day he lands on Utah Beach and in the following months fights through France, Belgium, and into Germany. The problems the common soldier faced between June 1944 and May 1945 are dealt with in particular in this authoritative and moving book.

4.0 out of 5 stars informative reading Oct. 5 2006

Book 3 of this series provides a nice basic view on the Conscripted American soldier of WWII. Provides insights into the first peace time draft, though I suspect the main reason for Roosevelt wanted it was the fiascoe of conscription of WWI when Woodrow Wilson found so few wanted to have anything to do with his war. My main peeve with this book is that it should have provided the basic designations for men besides 1-A physically and morally fit for service and available and 4-F Physically and Morally unfit and rejected for service. It also provides a nice view of the European theater.

Book 2 of this series, the Volunteer, is also a good read.

Otherwise a good book on the subject.

Having already read part 1 of the infantryman in the pacific part of me wondered whether it and part 3 would partly be redundant but I was really surprised that it is not in any way, in fact each part is very unique in its aspect. Very insightful.
