The 22nd is very much a part of my life and had it not been for your journal I would have had no idea of its destiny and its ending.

It isMoreThe 22nd is very much a part of my life and had it not been for your journal I would have had no idea of its destiny and its ending.

I am very grateful to you for his experience.-John Cheever David Rothbart has done us all a great service. It is compelling reading . . made more so by the many slice of life portraits . . . of his time in the U.S. Army.-John Gresham, bestselling author with Tom Clancy of Submarine and Special Forces Famous generals kept diaries knowing they were writing for history. [Rothbart] just wanted to tell what he saw. He wrote a wonderful story . . . and his singularity of voice helps separate it from other accounts.

. . . The men who serve din the war can read it and relive what they went through, and others can get insight into an era that is long passed.-Pittsburg Post-Gazette This is the extraordinary memoir of the 22nd Infantry Regiment, a unit that Ernest Hemingway stayed with for five months, from the drive across France to the bloody Battle of the Hurtgen Forest. It is a moving account of men who enlisted to fight in a just cause. It touches on the chaos of war and how accidental atrocities - such as the use of poison gas by American artillery on November 15, 1944 - were narrowly averted.

In addition, it is a journal surprisingly rich with humor - from how men learn all about the right way, the wrong way, and the Army way to those incongruous moments of comedy that can occur even on the battlefield. The result is a memoir so rich in character, detail, and atmosphere that the reader will feel that he/she is shoulder-to-shoulder with men from the Greatest Generation.
