One World War II Soldier's 500-Day Odyssey from the Beaches of Sicily to the Gates of Dachau For Free ↑ Kindle Author Alex Kershaw ❕ Kershaw writes for the New York Times and has also written several books on the experiences of American soldiers during WWII Here he chronicles the saga of the 157th Infantry from July 1943 to the end of the war At the center of the narrative is Felix Sparks, who, born in Texas and raised in Arizona, enlisted in the army in 1936 and rose to the rank of colonel by the end of the war He was in the thick of action as he and his regiment fought in Sicily, moved up the Italian coast and into Germany, and liberated the concentration camp at Dachau in Bavaria Using interviews with Sparks as well as his letters and those of his men, Kershaw tells a grim but also inspiring story There is little glory here Rather, it is a tale of death and destruction climaxed by the horror of countless rotting corpses at Dachau, where enraged G.I.s slaughtered German camp guards until stopped by Sparks Still, the ability of Sparks and his men to endure and persevere endows them with a degree of nobility This is a gripping and superbly told account of men in war Jay FreemanExceptional The Liberator balances evocative prose with attention to detail and is a worthy addition to vibrant classics of small unit history like Stephen Ambrose s Band of Brothers.From the desert of Arizona to the moral crypt of Dachau, Mr Kershaw s book bears witness to the hell that America s innocents came through, and the humanity they struggled to keep in their hearts Wall Street JournalA revealing portrait of a man who led by example and suffered a deep emotional wound with the loss of each soldier under his command The Liberator is a worthwhile and fast paced examination of a dedicated officer navigating and somehow surviving World War II Washington PostKershaws writing is seamless He incorporates information from a vast array of sources, but it works you get a sense of the different voices coming into the story.A gripping read Minneapolis Star TribuneA history of the American war experience in miniature, from the hard charging enthusiasm of the initial landings to the clear eyed horror of the liberation of the concentration camps.An uncynical, patriotic look at our finest hour The Daily BeastKershaw has ensured that individuals and entire battles that might have been lost to history, or overshadowed by important people and events, have their own place in the vast, protean tale of World War II.Where Kershaw succeeds, and where The Liberator is at its most riveting and satisfying, is in its delineation of Felix Sparks as a good man that other men would follow into Hell and in its unblinking, matter of fact description, in battle after battle, of just how gruesome, terrifying and dehumanizing that Hell could be Time.comKershaws accounts of the battles Sparks survived are clear and grisly and gripping World War II Kershaw is a captivating narrator, hammering home the chaos and carnage of war, sparing no sensory detail to paint a cohesive picture His portrayal of his subject based on interviews with Sparks, who died in 2007, and other survivors makes for a riveting, almost epic tale of a larger than life, underappreciated figure Publishers Weekly starred review This engrossing wartime narrative offers a fresh look at the European campaign
