The harrowing memoir of a Band of Brothers soldier who spent more consecutive days in combat than any other member of WWII's Easy CompanySgt Don Malarkey takes us not only into the battles fought from Normandy to Germany, but into the heart and mind of a soldier who beat the odds to become an elite paratrooper, and lost his best friend during the nightmarish engagement at Bastogne. Drafted in 1942, Malarkey arrived at Taccoa Camp in Georgia and was one of the few soldiers who earned Eagle wings and went to England in 1943 to provide ground cover for the largest amphibious military attack in history: Operation Overlord. In the darkness of D-Day morning, Malarkey parachuted into France and, within days, was awarded a Bronze Star for his heroism in battle. He fought for 23 days in Normandy, nearly 80 in Holland, 39 in Bastogne; and nearly 30 more in and near Haguenau, France and the Ruhr pocket in Germany. This is his dramatic tale of those bloody days fighting his way from the shores of France to the heartland of Germany, and the epic story of how an adventurous kid from Oregon became a leader of men.
