      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

In the Face of Obstacles - by Cheryl Frizzell

Recommended Posts

Proud to say that one of "our own", has just published a book regarding her father. Congrats, Cheryl. Can't wait to get my copy this week. Thanks for sending that to me.

 

In the Face of Obstacles

 

Her father was with the 34th Inf Div

 

Here's a description (taken from Amazon.com)

 

 

In the Face of Obstacles is the true story of a heavy machine gunner in World War II. It chronicles my father's experience as told by soldiers who were there with him, by photographs including his own, and by his regiment narrative histories. Put them all together, and a detailed account of their daily lives unravels with boot camp dirt in the green hills of Alabama; a seasick troop ship across the Atlantic Ocean to Casablanca, where "A-rabs ain't got cigarettes" and camels stink; a dusty boxcar ride across North Africa, where people live underground; hardcore training camps in the desert of Algeria, where cognac doubles as lighter fluid; and a thousand miles of frontline combat in a rugged country called Italy. It is all through the eyes of "the infantrymen who would likely be wounded or killed."
