Autorentext

Fred H. Salter led a life after World War II almost as adventurous as the years he spent in the Recon. After wandering through nearly every state and province in the United States and Canada, he married and tried to settle down but to no avail. Eventually the young married couple returned to Fred's beloved Alaska. When their three sons left home, he and his wife resumed their tumbleweed way of life. To fulfill a boyhood dream, the past few years he has lived on a mountain farm in the Swan Range of the Rocky Mountains, east of Kalispell, in northwest Montana. Every summer, he makes a trek back to his old log cabin on the shores of Auke Bay, Alaska. He still calls Alaska home.



Klappentext

HE LIVED ON THE ABYSS OF DEATH
AS A RECON SCOUT IN WORLD WAR II.

From Africa's Sahara Desert, where he met Churchill, to the plains of Tunisia, where he served under Patton, Fred Salter executed daring nightly solo missions, risking his life to gather the vital intelligence the U.S. Army desperately needed. After the battlefields of Sicily came the long, grueling effort to wrench Italy from the grip of the Nazis, and the bloody nightmare of Monte Cassino, the longest battle Americans fought during the war.

Salter spares no one, least of all himself, in this tough, clear-eyed account. Refusing to shy away from the horrors and fears of combat, he shares experiences-tragic and glorious-that will haunt him forever.
