Summary
"The phenomenal story of a remarkable young lieutenant during World War II, following him from the gruelling training at Toccoa right through the eventual collapse of the Third Reich. Gaining a reputation as a stubborn and outspoken soldier who insisted on the highest of standards, Shames didn't always win friends, but that was never his intention-- he was more concerned about winning each encounter, each battle and ultimately the war itself with the minimum loss of life amongst his men"--Page 2 of cover
