A young sergeant, recovered from battle against Rommel's Afrika Korps, is appointed leader of a dozen know-it-all draftees being poured into the Army's replacement pool. He toughens them into an effective team. As they land at Utah Beach, the Wehrmacht hands out its own bloody lessons. In minutes, one is dead and a second wounded, the onset of a pitiless 10-month ordeal. In horrific combat from Normandy through the Bulge to the Elbe River, they learn to defeat a skilled and hardened enemy. All pay a steep price.

About the Author
Scott began his writing career as a cub reporter for the Kansas Star. After service with the U.S. Army in Korea, Vietnam and -- worst of all -- Washington, D.C., he worked as a reporter and editor of several Midwestern newspapers and magazines. He and Jane are retired to a small west Michigan college town where they enjoy the woods, the birds and the battles -- or maybe games -- between Burt, their big black cat, and Bailey, the little white terrier.
