Colonel Matt Urban (Medal of Honor Recipient) emotionally involves readers in World War II battles on three continents & his final battle ending with a bullet through Urban's neck. Urban's book is different: Larger "easy-reader" print for "old soldiers." Story action is on the right pages; photos & facts on the left do not interrupt reader progress. Also, a veteran can create a personal war diary on special lined pages. Readers "hit the beach" as thousands of sevicemen invade Africa. They share experiences with "Do or Die" orders, "Kill or Be Killed" actions, meet & defeat German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, the Desert Fox. We "join" the 9th Division Invasion of Sicily & Urban's miraculous "Silent March" to outflank German forces. Urban goes AWOL from an English hospital. He hobbles to the Normandy front & leads his troops on the break-out at St. Lo. This earned Urban's Medal of Honor recommendation. Thousands of soldiers had individual battles to win, & their collective effort brought victory according to Urban. He also believes the collapse of Communism is the result of victories of World War II, Korea, Vietnam & current military preparedness.
