the story of "A" Battery, 319th Glider Field Artillery Battalion,
82nd Airborne Division during World War II.
The book is
based on in-depth interviews conducted by the author with twenty surviving
members of this unit, and is centered on the experiences of their Battery
Commander, Captain Charles Lenton Sartain of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Using his
background in clinical psychology author Covais helped the veterans to talk
about their experiences in a candid, direct manner, relating many aspects of
their service previously left unspoken.
