Overview
Cooper saw more of the war than most junior officers, and he writes about it better than almost anyone. . . . His stories are vivid, enlightening, full of life and of pain, sorrow, horror, and triumph.
STEPHEN E. AMBROSE
From his Foreword
In a down-to-earth style, Death Traps tells the compelling story of one man s assignment to the famous 3rd Armored Division that spearheaded the American advance from Normandy into Germany. Cooper served as an ordnance officer with the forward elements and was responsible for coordinating the recovery and repair of damaged American tanks. This was a dangerous job that often required him to travel alone through enemy territory, and the author recalls his service with pride, downplaying his role in the vast effort that kept the American forces well equipped and supplied. . . . Readers] will be left with an indelible impression of the importance of the support troops and how dependent combat forces were on them.
