Overall Winner of the 2019 PenCraft Awards for Literary Achievement in a Nonfiction book. Left for Dead at Nijmegen is the PenCraft 2019 Nonfiction Book of the Year.

2020 Montaigne Medal Finalist

“Years later, the book’s content was told by Metcalfe to Nannini, who has done a first-rate job of writing and editing the book for publication. The author combined Metcalfe’s memories with documented research about the events and treatment of German prisoners. Metcalfe’s story is also verified by his personal artwork/sketches that he managed to bring back after the war ended. This 229-paged memoir documents conditions endured during WW II by captured prisoners. Some events are difficult to read about, but Nannini has described these eye-opening facts without dwelling on the horrors. Donna Ford for US Review of Books.
RECOMMENDED by the US Review

“Told in the matter-of-fact tone of a college essay, the book is a page turner, full of coincidences, narrow escapes, and tension worthy of a Hollywood film. Left for Dead at Nijmegen is well worth the read.” Paul Garrett for Reedsy Discovery

“Some savvy screenplay writer will inevitably snag the rights to this one. The comic relief is already built into the suspense-driven plot. The story is just the right size for a movie in an industry struggling to break-away from comic book heroes into the genuine article.” Reviewed By: Casey Quyn, Manhattan Book Review of LEFT FOR DEAD AT NIJMEGEN.

The Highly Respected Midwest Book Review calls it “extraordinary and simply riveting”

Fresh from Paratroop School, Gene visits home in approximately January, 1944. That is his mom in the doorway.

“Very Riveting” Herbert Bauernebel, American Correspondent for the German periodicals BILD and amerikaREPORT.

“Dear Mr. Nannini, I’ve just read your book ‘Left for dead at Nijmegen’. The story of Gene Metcalfe is really amazing and beautifully written. I salute you for keeping his brave history alive! Yours sincerely, Harry Hekman, Lieutenant Colonel, Royal Military Police, (Koninklijke Marechaussee) The Netherlands”.

Gene spent numerous hellish months at Stalag VII-A.

“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.”   … “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.”  Literary Titan, July 12, 2019.
