Book DescriptionThis compelling work is Lloyd M. Wells's firsthand account of World War II based on a journal he kept during the war, letters he sent home, and personal records, as well as recollections of people and events. Wells offers the reader information that has never before been provided. He tells exactly what happened to 2/7 Queens on the night of February 21, 1944, when the troops came up to "the caves" at Anzio. He also depicts what happened during the last offensive in Italy and what armored infantry troops experienced on the perimeter of the attack. This book, however, is not just a story of battle actions. It is a personal story about the "old Army" and how young soldiers were transformed by it during one of the greatest upheavals in world history. "Beyond question this is one of the best written, most hauntingly eloquent books I've read in years. It is beautifully done."-Robert H. Ferrell
