Item Details

Baker & Taylor
Looks at World War II in Europe, from D-Day to the fall of Berlin, from the perspective of the American infantry soldiers who fought, capturing the horrors and hardships of battle while dealing with issues of leadership, strategy, and tactics.

Blackwell North Amer
The Boys' Crusade is the great historian Paul Fussell's unflinching and unforgettable account of the American infantryman's experiences in Europe during World War II. Based in part on the author's own experiences, it provides a stirring narrative of what the war was actually like, from the point of view of the children - for children they were - who fought it. While dealing definitively with issues of strategy, leadership, context, and tactics, Fussell has an additional purpose: to tear away the veil of feel-good mythology that so often obscures and sanitizes war's brutal essence.

& Taylor
