Articles of War

by Nick Arvin (Doubleday)

An addition to the chronicles of individuals who served in the Second World War. It is a very compelling tale that enables the reader to obtain a perspective of what it was really like for the GI on the ground by providing the reader with an eye-opening view of the carnage and chaos of the war.
