eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Merriam Press World War 2 Memoir Series. Before the war Charlie was a member of a National Guard cavalry unit. In 1942 he enlisted at Fort Riley, where they were still training horse units. Two years... More > later Charlie was recruited by the OSS. After training, Charlie shipped out in July 1944 for England. After training as a spy, in late 1944 he went to France in an OSS section attached to Seventh Army. The last half of the book details his experiences recruiting locals as agents to perform intelligence missions, often going behind German lines. During one such mission, things go wrong and Charlie's actions result in his receiving a Silver Star. He was among those who went into Dachau after the camp was liberated. Charlie's job was to locate certain individuals among the prisoners who had been recruited by the OSS as spies and had fallen into enemy hands, and to get them back. Charlie's memoir covers two topics—cavalry and the OSS—that have seen little coverage in WW2 memoirs. 13 photos.< Less

Merriam Press World War 2 Biography Series. Dayton Edie was my good friend and a bona fide American hero. He seldom spoke of his own combat from fighting in World War II and the Korean War, and on... More > those rare occasions that he did, I listened intently.
