Description

These are stories taken from the personal diaries, letters and newspaper clippings, and word of mouth accounts of my father's life just behind the combat lines of North Africa, France, and Germany. This is not a "I jumped out of a B-29, then stormed the beaches" type of book. These are the more day to day accounts of the personal lives, backgrounds, and feelings of a group of men. For example: How do you stay "seated" on a toilet on a ship in the middle of the middle of the North Atlantic ocean when the ship is riding 30 to 40 foot waves? You take your pants belt, loop it under the back of the toilet, then across your lap (If you happen to be seasick at the time, then you really have a problem). How do you bathe approximately 2000 men who have just spent 30 days on a ship with rationed fresh water? You run them through a human "car wash". What do you do when your sick to death of eating dried, powdered, canned and reprocessed food? You go out and shoot a couple of wild boars (and save a guy's life in the process even after he did something real stupid.). How do you put out a fire in a wooden boxcar on a train in North Africa and you have no water at your disposal? You pee in it. What do you do with a dead Frenchman in the middle of Paris? You drop him off at the nearest police station.
