Product Overview

Before D-Day, regular army soldiers called the National Guardsmen of Virginia''s 116th Infantry Regiment "Home Nannies," "Weekend Warriors," and worse. At Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944, however, these proud Virginians who carried the legacy of the famed Stonewall Brigade showed the regular army and the world what true valor really was. This moving World War II memoir captures the day-to-day comings and goings of G.I. Joe from pre-World War II National Guard days through induction, training, deployment overseas, and more training. It all leads to Normandy, when Sergeant Bob Slaughter came across Omaha Beach with Company D of the 116th Infantry. But even that was only the beginning of a march that would take him and his fellow soldiers of Company D, at least those who survived, to Holland, the Bulge, and on into Germany itself--the long march to final victory in Europe.
