Summary
  • "With Unknown Soldiers, internationally acclaimed author Joseph E. Garland presents World War II through the eyes of a close-knit infantry platoon-men who braved Nazi fire to stake out the front lines of the Allied campaigns in Sicily, Italy, France, and finally Germany."
  • "From the author's own wartime love story, to the recollections of a French Resistance fighter who joined the platoon, to fresh eyewitness accounts of the Dachau liberation, Unknown Soldiers contributes important new material to our record of World War II and indeed the true nature of war itself. Sixty-five years in the making, the book fulfills Garland's mission to break the silence that allows war to ensnare generation after generation. In giving voice to his "unknowns, " Joe has given them an indelible place in history."--Jacket
