The Most Honest Book on Combat--Stephen E. Ambrose
"As publisher of Seven Roads to Hell we are excited and proud to bring this fine book to the reading public. Bestselling historian Stephen E. Ambrose has given us the following comments: "I interview combat veterans, or read their manuscripts or books for a living. I've been doing this for thirty years. I've written a couple of books on the 101st Airborne in Bastogne. I've heard and read a lot a spine tingling stories. Donald Burgett's Seven Roads to Hell beats every one. His descriptions are on the mark, leaving the reader exhausted yet eager for more. Burgett can carry you through a day or a week in combat with vivid language, a gripping fear, a never-ending wish that his squad, platoon, company can somehow work their way through this one; a deep desire for food, even K rations, a yearning for sleep, praying for more ammunition, wondering if and when the doctors will arrive--and this is just for starters. The Battle of the Ardennes was the biggest of World War II, but Burgett takes us down to the individual level so that we can understand it.
"Until now I thought E.B. Sledge's With the Old Breed was the most honest book on combat I had ever read. Burgett's account of his experiences at Bastogne surpasses everything.
"It is a marvelous book."
We hope you enjoy Seven Roads to Hell. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
From the Author
I was a trooper on the line, the one who pulled the trigger
I was a paratrooper in the 101st from the first day of battle to the last. I told it how it was to meet the enemy in hand to hand combat in four different campaigns. Eleven of my original Co. survived the war, most of those are now dead. I had to tell our story. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
Top customer reviews
Anyone who has found an interest in D-day, Bastogne, Carentan etc. through Band of Brothers or Private Ryan will love the books written by Donald R. Burgett. They read like a fast paced novel and it is almost difficult to believe that what is being described actually took place and all happened to one man. It makes you appreciate how ordinary men were asked to do extraordinary things.
