War era correspondence and 70 year old photographs depict an age of heroism and innocence. PHOTOGRAPHER, PARATROOPER, POW:  A Wyoming Cowboy in Hitler?s Germany tells the story of three brothers who leave their Wyoming home to fight in World War II. This historical narrative begins with the westward expansion of a tough breed of immigrants, and ends with the rendition of Harold Carroll?s many harrowing escapes from Nazi prisoner of war camps, mostly described in his own words. Within these pages family histories, military experiences, personal desires, photos, and war-time correspondence subtly communicate the angst and awe of an era. Judiciously saved by one of America?s first paratroopers, a combat photographer, and a prisoner of war whose stubborn tenacity saved him repeatedly from execution at the hands of the Nazis; and meticulously compiled by the author into a rich saga that allows glimpses into our colorful & troubled past.

Editorial Reviews

As the daughter of a World War II Darby's Ranger, I have read, researched and written much about warriors of the Greatest Generation. I know how much work goes into even the shortest of combat articles.Therefore, I was astonished at the depth and breadth of the historical research contained in A Wyoming Cowboy in Hitler's Germany, as well as the author's ability to transmit it to the reader in an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable fashion.Through the adroit use of photos, letters, documents and prose, the author brings to life - from boyhood through World War II - three All-American brothers, each of whom worked his way up to the rank of officer. All three left for war: a commander/ paraskier, a submarine navigator and a photographer/paratrooper.The two paratroopers were reported missing in action during the Normandy D-Day invasion. One of them was later documented to be a German prisoner of war. Of the three brothers who marched off to battle, only two came home.This book relates a compelling story, skillfully written. It is a must read for those who love history and especially those fascinated by World War II history.Marsha Henry Goff, author of A Crazy Plan: Darby's Rangers Historic Last Stand at Cisterna
