What are Rakuten Super Points™?
|Roger Fazendin spent the last three years of his life collecting memories from his 756th Tank Battalion brothers who survived WWII and the Battle of Cassino. Fazendins design was to give the comrades who fought in that battle, and their families, a full picture of what the hell went on. Battle action is fast and disjointed; each soldiers grasp of the action is limited by the intense focus required by his specific orders, hardware, and survival imperatives. This book is a collection of material from over fifty survivors, with a half dozen primary contributors, into a coherent series of narratives. The results make for riveting reading. What is unique about this book is the fact that it is written by the men themselves--not by the commanders, not by historians, not by the military. It is a record written by mature men about the thoughts and memories recorded in their young minds while they were surviving the chaos and madness of unrelenting battle in terrible winter weather. Fazendins additions of context and historical record make for a wise and compelling assembly of the experiences of one battle. Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. *Author: Fazendin, Roger *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 252 *Publication Date: 2003/07/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.20 x 6.06 x 0.65 inches|
