PHOENIX - March 14, 2019 - PRLog -- LEFT FOR DEAD AT NIJMEGEN, The True Story of an American Paratrooper in WW II

ISBN: 978-1-61200-696-3
A World War II Biography by Noted WW II Five Star Author, Marcus A. Nannini.

         Book Description
In this dramatic and compelling WW II nonfiction work, Gene Metcalfe announces to his senior math class in November, 1942 that he has quit school and is reporting for duty with the 82nd Airborne, 508th pir.

Only a few hours into his first combat mission he finds himself deep in the bowels of a Charlemagne Era castle, wedged between a pair of machine gun toting "SS" fanatics while being interrogated by the notorious Nazi Heinrich Himmler.

It was only the beginning of what would prove to be eight harrowing months under the thumb of the Nazi High Command. He would witness carnage, mass murder, executions, risk his life to save a wounded fellow paratrooper, suffer extreme deprivation, be used as slave labor and continuously dodge death at the hands of both the German and Allied armed forces.

"Left for Dead at Nijmegen is a stunning and beautifully written recounting of Gene Metcalfe's experiences beginning with his life-changing decision to quit school and enlist to become a paratrooper. While the story is written by Nannini, I consistently felt Metcalfe's presence within the telling, and the photographs included in the book increase the impact and credibility of Metcalfe's story."

"Left for Dead at Nijmegen: The True Story of an American Paratrooper is an important work, one that exemplifies the sacrifices made by our military and reveals the reality of the POWs' struggle to survive under the harshest of situations. It's most highly recommended."
