Description
The inspiration for E.M. Nathanson's book and the subsequent film The Dirty Dozen—despite the wild inventions of that story—the World War II fighting unit known as the Filthy Thirteen was an accomplished if notoriously misfit squad of paratroopers fighting with the 101st Airborne Division. Trained as a U.S. Army Ranger, Jack Womer was transferred into the 101st and fought at the spearhead of Allied operations in Normandy, Holland, and the Battle of the Bulge. With the help of Stephen DeVito, Womer—one of the few survivors of the 13—provides a frank memoir of close-quarters combat in Europe, relating the almost surreal experience of Dust-Bowl-era GIs entering country after country in their grapple with the Wehrmacht, finally ending up in Hitler's mountaintop lair in Germany.

"Co-author Stephen DeVito did a great job of interviewing Wormer and putting his stories into a first person narrative. The book gives the feel of a veteran telling the actions of his youth.... I recommend this well-written and interesting book."—Kepler's Military History
