THE LIBERATOR One World War II Soldier's 500-Day Odyssey from the Beaches of Sicily to the Gates of Dachau

by | Read by Fred Sanders

History • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

In WWII, the now legendary Thunderbird Division moved from Sicily through Italy to France and beyond, fighting at such well-known sites as Anzio, "the Bulge" (France, Luxembourg, and Belgium), and the high, bloody mountains leading to Bavaria. Their efforts ultimately led to the liberation of Europe. This book focuses on Colonel Felix Sparks as he rose in rank while the unspeakable horrors of infantry war raged around him. His was the first regiment to reach Dachau and learn its secrets, with repercussions that are debated to this day. Narrator Fred Sanders manages to insert a sense of urgency into the narrative--which is not easy in a book that is largely devoid of dialogue. He makes only occasional attempts at a foreign accent but somehow makes the ghastly events seem up close, horrible, and real. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
