About the Author

After nearly two years serving in the European Theater of Operations, surviving D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge and serving as a guard at the Nuremberg Trials, Ralph J Gordon returned home to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ralph is the only child of Lewis and Clara Gordon. He entered the army at the age of 18 and wrote this book upon returning home at the end of his duty. He is one of only three surviving men from his company who stormed Omaha Beach on D-Day. Ralph was featured in Life Magazine as "A Typical G.I. in Germany" in the October 1945 issue. He received numerous citations for bravery and valor including both a Bronze Star and Silver Star. On August 20, 1950 Ralph wed Ricki Perlin and is the proud father of Mark, Stuart, Kenny, Kathy, Beth and Donna. He is also the devoted grandfather of Scott, Amanda, Lindsay, Jeffery and Jenna. Ralph, sadly, passed away in October 2010.
