The day following the infamous D-Day invasion, author Everett W. Haegele set sail from New York to England with the 7th Armored Division of the U.S. Army to join the Allied offensive in France. Haegele's memoir, based on a diary he kept during his German imprisonment, reveals the intimate details of army life and combat during World War II.Haegele arrived at Omaha Beach a month after the Normandy Invasion, but still in time to witness the chilling aftermath of D-Day. It wasn't long before he and his comrades saw combat. The 7th Division spearheaded for the 3rd Army under General Patton, fighting through France, Belgium, and Holland.In October of 1944, Haegele and a small force of soldiers faced a German Panzer division with orders to delay them for forty-eight hours, but they were overrun and taken prisoner on October 29. Transported deep into the heart of Germany, Haegele spent nearly seven months as a POW and was liberated on May 1, 1945, by the Russian army.Full of vivid detail, Haegele's wartime memoir is a compelling, must-read account for any World War II enthusiast.
