Reviews

"A gripping first person account . . . a well written and exceptional book."--"American Airborne Association Journal"

--Col. William E. Weber, USA-Retired"American Airborne Association Journal" (02/27/2012)
""Glider Infantryman" is a well researched, gripping account of military combat in the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe during World War II. Brooks doesn't sugarcoat the story: The brutality and suffering are real - so is the heroism of ordinary men. Like so many veterans from that era, Don Rich found it hard to talk about his experiences, and some haunted him into old age. With a faith Don met through his chaplain, Gordon Cosby (my pastor), he was finally able to release his anger and bitterness in a life of service to others.
As a teenager when World War II ended in 1945, I often spoke to returning veterans and listened closely. I remember their faces, especially their eyes. The sheer brutality of the killing left them mostly silent and grateful to breathe in and out, moment by moment. Those men inspired in me a sense of duty and courage that I have never forgotten. This book is a fitting tribute to them all."--Jerry S. Parr, assistant director, US Secret Service (ret.)
