Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060763418, Hardcover)
Before he became one of America's most respected statesmen, Bob Dole was an average citizen serving heroically for his country. The bravery he showed after suffering near-fatal injuries in the final days of World War II is the stuff of legend. Now, for the first time in his own words, Dole tells the moving story of his harrowing experience on and off the battlefield, and how it changed his life.
Speaking here not as a politician but as a wounded G.I., Dole recounts his own odyssey of courage and sacrifice, and also honors the fighting spirit of the countless heroes with whom he served. Heartfelt and inspiring, One Soldier's Story is the World War II chronicle that America has been waiting for.

Senator Bob Dole recalls his personal experiences as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army's Tenth Mountain Division during World War Two, his hopes of returning to Kansas after the war and resuming his studies to become a doctor, and the wounds he received in Italy that changed the course of his life forever.
