    Based on my book The Road to War: Duty & Drill, Courage & Capture


    [SIZE=medium]A riveting first-person account of a brave young man caught up in a cataclysmic World War.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]This is the story of Captain William C. Frodsham, Jr., who — shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor — enlisted in the U.S. Army Infantry, where he excelled in basic training, became a junior officer, and eventually led a combat boat team ashore on OMAHA BEACH[/SIZE].

    [SIZE=medium]Six days later, in French hedgerow country and under withering German fire, Frodsham was wounded and taken prisoner[/SIZE]. He spent the next year as a German POW, where he suffered great deprivation before finally being liberated by advancing Russian forces.

    [SIZE=medium]His training, his courage, his capture. The reader is taken for a first-person tour of the times at home and then tunneled into a vastly different world on the battlefield and in a German prisoner-of-war camp.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]A truly remarkable story.[/SIZE]

    The Road to War: Duty & Drill, Courage & Capture


    Critique: A truly remarkable story that is an exceptionally candid and well written, riveting first-person account of a young man caught up in a cataclysmic World War, “The Road to War” is especially recommended for community library collections and is a worth addition to expanding academic library World War II memoirs and biographies. It should be noted for personal reading lists that “The Road to War” is also available in a paperback edition (9781450218801, $23.95) and in a Kindle format ($2.51).
