LEFT FOR DEAD AT NIJMEGEN

Imagine being thrown into the air and smacked into the ground so hard your right eardrum shatters and your skull is cracked. That’s what happened when a shell from a German “88” exploded nearby Gene, a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne, 508th pir. Braving withering fire from the 10th “SS” his best friend raced across the road, turned him over and saw blood pouring from his ear. He left him for dead and was lucky to make it back himself. Next thing Gene knew he was standing in front of HEINRICH HIMMLER, machine gun toting “SS” fanatics on either side of him while deep within the bowels of an ancient castle. And that was the high water mark for the day!

That was all on Day One of Operation Market Garden, 75 years ago. 1944-2019. Don’t delay and order your copy of this “very riveting” true story now and learn about Market Garden from a very different and definitely harrowing perspective.

Germans issued their own “dog tags.”

“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.” Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite.

“Left for Dead at Nijmegenis 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. I enjoyed seeing the young soldier through the author’s eyes,especially his artistic and humorous side, and I loved the stories of how he would get in trouble in school and boot camp for his cartoons. I was thrilled to see a few of his drawings were included in the back of the book and couldn’t help but chuckle at the one entitled ‘das brot.'” Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite
