Summary
This compelling memoir tracks the war experiences of a radio wireman in the 11th Infantry Regiment of the Fifth Infantry Division. Born in Brooklyn and having left school in the sixth grade to work, the author enlisted at the age of 17. The book explores his time in combat, when he laid down wire for radio communications, often along the front lines and during battles, always alert for German troops. Featured are his sketches of the scenes of his work with fellow soldiers. Particular attention is paid to the role of the wireman and the history of the Fifth Infantry Division
