      The best of combat memoirs are the ones that do just tell it like it was, and Ray Lambert s memoir of his battle experiences from North Africa, to Sicily, to Omaha Beach on D Day ranks right up there with the best of battle memoirs Ray is simple and frank and this is the value of his story As you read it, you begin to agree with Ray, almost every man, really was a hero.Here is a good example of Mr Lambert s simple and frank style He tells about the one guy in his unit who was that guy, i The bes [...]

      While this book was less than electrifying I hold it in high regard because of the fact that its a true story told by an American Hero Many people of my generation do not know much about WWII or the sacrifices our county had to make to defend our freedom Stories like this bring us one step closer understanding the insanity of war and the unwavering bravery that all Americans showed when our world was in turmoil.

      I ve read a lot of combat memoirs This is one of the better ones It s a fast read and provides a fair amount of context for readers who aren t that familiar with WW2 Though billed as a memoir of D Day it also covers the author s time in North Africa and Sicily, two areas of the war that do not get as much coverage as D Day onward.

    5. Mike Kennedy says:
      The cover of this book is misleading It says it is a memoir of D Day I m sure it was put on there because the release coincided with the 75th anniversary of D Day Honestly I m glad it is misleading because it is so much.The book follows Ray Lambert who is a medic and sergeant in the army during World War II The book starts out with his upbringing before talking about his time in the war This memoir is about so much than D Day He was involved in the landings in North Africa and Si The cover of th [...]
