About this product
- DescriptionBill Hanford had one of the U.S. Army's riskiest jobs in World War II: artillery forward observer. Tasked with calling in heavy fire on the enemy, FOs accompanied infantrymen into combat, crawled into -man's-land, and ascended hills and ridges to find their targets--all while the enemy singled them out with a vengeance. The war may have been drawing to a close as Hanford fought in eastern France and then Germany, but as his brutally honest memoir reveals, that didn't make his assignment any less dangerous.
- Author BiographyWilliam B. Hanford served with the U.S. 103rd Infantry Division of the Seventh Army.
