Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966412087, Paperback)

As a young Major of the Essex Scottish Regiment in World War II, Budd Lynch lost his right arm and shoulder at the hands of an enemy rocket shortly following the D-Day Invasion at Normandy. Soon after the attack, he resumed his pre-war radio career and contributed to the BBC throughout the remainder of the war. But that was just the beginning of Lynch's hall of fame broadcasting career. After the war, Lynch joined the Detroit Red Wings as a broadcaster and continues to be a vital part of the historic hockey club today as the public address announcer at Joe Louis Arena. Lynch s autobiography chronicles a life as a soldier, broadcaster and humanitarian aid worker with War Amps. In Lynch's years with the Red Wings, he has arguably seen more of the team's ups and downs than anyone else. My Life: From Normandy to Hockeytown is packed with fascinating anecdotes and insider information from the man who saw it all.
