Written with Alex Kershaw's trademark narrative drive and vivid immediacy, "The Liberator" traces theremarkable battlefield journey of maverick U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks through the Allied liberation of Europe from the first landing in Italy to the final death throes of the Third Reich.
Over five hundred bloody days, Sparks and his infantry unit battled from the beaches of Sicily through the mountains of Italy andFrance, ultimately enduring bitter and desperate winter combat against the die-hard SS on the Fatherland's borders.Having miraculouslysurvived the long, bloody march across Europe, Sparks wasselected to lead a final charge to Bavaria, where he and his men experienced some of the most intense street fighting suffered by Americans in World War II.
And when hefinally arrived at the gates of Dachau, Sparks confronted scenes that robbed the mind of reason and put hishumanity tothe ultimate test."
