about

The GI's War contains eyewitness accounts from ordinary young men, farm hands and factory workers, who had war thrust upon them and in the process became veteran soldiers. Their unsparing narratives, presented in their own words, capture the many emotions evoked by war. GIs and their commanding officers speak freely, and movingly, of becoming soldiers, of enduring the ordeals of the various campaigns, and of fightling for their lives and their country. Vividly personal and compelling, this book puts the reader on the front lines.

Editorial Reviews

Throughout this fast-paced narrative, Hoyt skillfully depicts how foot soldiers gradually evolved from an original state of confused ineptitude into disciplined warriors....Unblinkingly realistic and scrupulously unsentimental.
