Guy Sajer

Forgotten Soldier recounts the horror of World War II on the eastern front, as seen through the eyes of a teenaged German soldier. At first an exciting adventure, young Guy Sajer’s war becomes, as the German invasion falters in the icy vastness of the Ukraine, a simple, desperate struggle for survival against cold, hunger, and above all the terrifying Soviet artillery. As a member of the elite Gross Deutschland Division, he fought in all the great battles from Kursk to Kharkov. Sajer's German footsoldier’s perspective makes The Forgotten Soldier a unique war memoir, the book that the Christian Science Monitor said "may well be the book about World War II which has been so long awaited." Now it has been handsomely republished containing fifty rare German combat photos of life and death at the eastern front. The photos of troops battling through snow, mud, burned villages, and rubble-strewn cities depict the hardships and destructiveness of war. Many are originally from the private collections of German soldiers and have never been published before. This volume is a deluxe edition of a true classic.

They died only a few miles apart and yet there cannot be a bigger contrast between their legacies. Edward had been born into poverty in west London on the eve of the twentieth century, had a job washing railway carriages, was conscripted into the army at the age of eighteen and sent to the Western Front from where he would never return.He lies buried miles from home in a small military cemetery on the outskirts of an obscure town close to the French border in western Belgium.

Guy Sajer

When Guy Sajer joins the infantry full of ideals in the summer of 1942, the German army is enjoying unparalleled success in Russia. However, he quickly finds that for the foot soldier the glory of military success hides a much harsher reality of hunger, fatigue, and constant deprivation. Posted to the elite Grosse Deutschland division, with its sadistic instructors who shoot down those who fail to make the grade, he enters a violent and remorseless world where all youthful hope is gradually ground down, and all that matters is the brute will to survive. As the biting cold of the Russian winter sets in, and the tide begins to turn against the Germans, life becomes an endless round of pounding artillery attacks and vicious combat against a relentless and merciless Red Army. Sajer's perspective as a German foot soldier makes The Forgotten Soldier a unique war memoir, the book that the Christian Science Monitor said "may well be the book about World War II which has been so long awaited." A work of stunning force, this is an unforgettable reminder of the horrors of war.

Carroll Durham

"This is a story of Carroll A. Durham, becoming a soldier as an African American during the Vietnam War. It is a story that has never been told. Carroll was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in 1993. He is a poster child for getting the word out about what it was like for 300,000 veteran casualties who served out of 2, 500,000 troops that served in Vietnam. There are very few books in the market about the African American soldier. This story tells of the trials and tribulations of black male youth growing up during the Civil Rights Movement in the new integrated army. The story is also similar to the 30,000 casualties of the Iraq war who suffers just like the Vietnam veteran along with their families. Carroll dreamed of being a soldier growing up in his father’s footsteps by him being a person in uniform during World War II. Carroll wanted to know what it was like being a soldier in the Vietnam War. He wants this story to get out to the families of the Vietnam Era, so they can see what their patriots went through during this period in our American history. "

Fawn Zwickel

"When we think of armies, we think of mass waves of soldiers, but very seldom do we think of the one man and his story. That’s what this book gives us." -- Dog Eared BooksThis is a story of what happened to a man who was a sergeant of a twelve man squad in the second wave of the D-Day invasion, Omaha Beach, June 6, 1944. Less a story of combat, more a story of what happened to the man, Sgt. Dan Altman, who landed on Omaha Beach with his squad and fought its way off Omaha Beach into France, across the Siegfried Line, into the Hurtgen Forest and on to the Battle of the Bulge and then finally as part of the guard unit at Camp Ashcan and the Prison at Nuremburg guarding high ranking Nazi’s such as Hermann Goering, Joachim Von Ribbentrop, Albert Kesselring and others. Sergeant Altman, because of his war record and Jewish Faith, was chosen as part of a five man unit to visit notorious concentration camps at Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald, and Auschwitz to make reports for the Prosecution Attorney for the International Military Tribunal at Nuremburg. He returned home to his wife in Newark, New Jersey, on December 15, 1945.

Arthur Guy Empey

"Over the Top" by an American soldier who went; Arthur Guy Empey; machine gunner, serving in France; together with Tommy's Dictionary of the Trenches.About the AuthorWilliam J. Long (1857-1952) lived and worked in Stamford, Connecticut as a minister of the First Congregationalist Church.He was also a naturalist who would leave Stamford in March, often with his two daughters Lois and Cesca in tow, to travel to "the wilderness" of Maine. There they would stay until the first snows of October. Sometimes he would stay all winter. In the '20's, he bypassed Maine for Nova Scotia, claiming "the wilderness is getting too crowded."He wrote of these wilderness experiences, in books Ways of Wood Folk, Wilderness Ways, Wood-folk Comedies, Northern Trails, Wood Folk at School, along with many others. His earlier books were illustrated by Charles Copeland; two later ones were illustrated by Charles Livingston Bull. He believed that the best way to experience the wild was to plant yourself and sit for hours on end to let the wild "come to you; and they will!".Many of his early books were issued in school editions under the title of The Wood Folk Series.
