Small Victories in a Great Big War By John H. Canfield AudioBook summary
An incredible journey of traumatic near-death moments, day to day drudgery, amusing situations, and brushes with greatness in World War II.
Life for a World War II paratrooper was grave and perilous; John H. Canfield’s experience was no different. However, this young man found himself in so many crazy—sometimes humorous—situations that he almost forgot about how dangerous it was.
Filled with pranksters and superiors full of bravado and an unfortunate brush with racial bigotry with a fellow African American soldier, Canfield shares his many stories from basic training and jump school. But his best stories are from the war. From having to translate a dinner for an inebriated superior using his scant French, to getting chewed out by none other than General George S. Patton, Canfield shares a wealth of experiences from his WWII tour of the European theater.
