Inhaltsangabe: Joe Busi's hard labor as a Pennsylvania coal miner and his life in abject poverty could not have made him any tougher. But no amount of toughness could prepare him for what was to come after he was inducted into the United States Army in 1942. On June 6, 1944, Joe was thrust into the greatest amphibious assault in human history-D-Day on the beaches of Normandy, France.His ability to survive D-Day only meant he had to endure six more months of brutality that stretched the limits of human endurance. Joe witnessed death and destruction beyond belief. He became an efficient killing machine and accepted the fact that he, too, would eventually be killed. He received the Silver and Bronze Stars for his bravery, but his luck came to an end on a snowy Belgium battlefield. Critically wounded from the Nazi onslaught known as the Battle of the Bulge, he prayed his death would be quick.After experiencing sixty-one years of heart-wrenching survival guilt, eighty-five year old Joe returned to Europe and was overwhelmed by the gratitude of the Europeans. His story and how he overcame the odds against survival is as amazing as the man himself.
