Dear Captain, et al." tells the story of Company K, 335th Infantry, 84th Division during the last six months of combat in Europe during World War II and the author's struggle for survival. As a rifleman, messenger, and communications sergeant, he was one of a handful of men who made it from the Siegfried Line, through the Battle of Bulge, and across the Roer, Rhine, and Weser rivers to finish at the Elbe near Berlin without becoming a casualty. Written from notes made Dear Captain, et al." tells the story of Company K, 335th Infantry, 84th Division during the last six months of combat in Europe during World War II and the author's struggle for survival. As a rifleman, messenger, and communications sergeant, he was one of a handful of men who made it from the Siegfried Line, through the Battle of Bulge, and across the Roer, Rhine, and Weser rivers to finish at the Elbe near Berlin without becoming a casualty. Written from notes made just after hostilities ceased and melded with official military records, visits to battlefields and cemeteries, contemporary news stories, letters, and testimonials of company veterans, it is one of the most thorough accounts ever written about a combat unit. There are scores of interesting characters, eyewitness accounts of every battle, documentation of every casualty, and powerful descriptions of warfare. A poignant love story, woven through the story, adds a tender ecstasy. We read the author's love letters to and from a girl called Mary and share their anxieties amid circumstances that neither can control. Dear Captain, et al. is beautifully written with a passion that reminds of James Jones and the nostalgic longing of F. Scott Fitzgerald. While writing it the author was often brought to tears. Memory is a bitch, he notes. WHAT READERS ARE SAYING. "The memoir is moving, filled with sadness, anger, humor, and joy. You do not hint at what is called the glory of battle, yet your account is full of human courage and determination. And love." VINCE RYAN, Army Security Agency. "This is a great effort. I bought the hardcover (will buy four or six more) and the ebook. All of my memories of (my father) were seeing him in the hospital."
