This country has had so many gallant warriors, genuine heroes of our wars, with stories of them filling many bookshelves. There’s a relatively new one, “The Liberator,” by Alex Kershaw, that we have read that ranks as one of the best on a World War II officer and his unit, the 157th Infantry Regitment of the 45th Thunderbird Division.

We  strongly recommend the book, published in 2012, especially that it be read by former members of that regitment and division. There undoubtedly are still a few alive. The 157th suffered heavy casualties, with entire companies wiped out in fierce fighting from the invasion of Sicily, to the invasion of Italy, then in France and Germany.
