was in the rugged mountains outside Naples.
the most decorated officer of the 82d Airborne Division and saw more action

World War II memoir. Throughout his narrative, he skillfully interweaves
stories of the other paratroopers of H Company, 504th Parachute Infantry
Regiment. The result is a remarkable account of men at war.
