“Nannini dutifully constructs images and characteristics of the POW camps that his subject was forced into that were previously unknown. This work, therefore, is as important to historical study of the period as it is a riveting and fascinating tale…The writing is direct, simple, and honest, relaying the same feeling that you get from the main character. Left for Dead in Nijmegen, written by Marcus A Nannini and published by Casemate, a resounding recommendation to readers of historical novels.” Literary Titan, July 12, 2019. https://literarytitan.com/2019/07/12/left-for-dead-at-nijmegen/

“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.”
“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.” Review Link: https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/left-for-dead-at-nijmegen

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. It would prove to be the high water mark for the day!
