    If you want to know what World War II in Europe looked like from an infantryman's point of view, follow William F. (Mac) McMurdie from the induction process in Pasadena, CA, in April 1943 to his safe return home in February 1946. McMurdie didn't write the book until 1999, at age 74. But his mother had kept every letter that he sent home, and he had written notes about his experiences just after the war. Also, he realized that many of the men who served in WWII were beginning to die off. Many of the books on the subject were big-picture books, and friends encouraged him to write a book based on the experiences of the common soldier.

    This he does very well. It is no problem imagining yourself being in the same situations that McMurdie found himself in. He was a member of the 394th Regiment of the 99th Infantry Division, which, among other things, took part in the Battle of the Bulge. He covers all facets of his experience: the discomfort of being wet and cold from exposure to the rain and snow, hunger when no food was available for a couple of days, the disorientation of having shells falling around you, the anguish of seeing a close friend killed in battle, with the realization that it could just as easily have been him who died. McMurdie is a from a Christian family who was continually praying for his safety, and he has since served for 50 years in Christian ministry, so references to God's protection are common. So are excepts from his letters home, and he wrote home often, sometimes daily.

    It is apparent that McMurdie is thankful to God for bringing him through the war safely, and that he is loves his country and its founding principles. In this book he wants to pass these thoughts and feelings on to future generations. Pb, approx 200 pgs.
