"This brutally honest memoir by a young infantrymen who landed on Normandy Beach on D-Day and fought his way across Europe is perhaps the finest work to come out of World War II. Etched in Purple pulls no punches and is written with a poetic intensity that is lacking in most war novels. Stunning and vivid, it is destined to be a classic in war literature."--Rob Morris, author of Untold Valor: Forgotten Stories of American Bomber Crews over Europe in World War II--Rob Morris

Irgang . . . has succeeded in doing what at least one million others who served with the infantry during the war wished they could have accomplished.

Never once does the author let reader attention slip."--Los Angeles Times--Los Angeles Times
