Summary Excerpt Comments

Description: The order to fall back had finally been given by Lieutenant Weaver. Gene, being in an advanced position, didn’t hear the order, stood his ground and continued to fire as fast as he could, having run out of hand-grenades. His best friend, Meade, positioned about 50 yards away on the other side of the road did hear the order and despite the darkness realized Gene wasn’t pulling back. Not wanting to leave his friend he decided he’d take a chance and charge across the roadway to let him know they were pulling out.

Just as Meade took his first step towards Gene’s position a shell from a German “Eighty-Eight” cannon exploded near Gene and threw his body high into the air, hitting the ground with an audible thump. Undaunted, Meade continued across the road dodging enemy fire the entire time and found Gene lying face-down. He rolled him over, noticed blood coming from his right ear and assumed the worst. Gene was left for dead at Nijmegen, the only member of the patrol who did not return.

Some time passed before Gene began to regain consciousness. His ears were ringing and he felt as if he was on a merry-go-round when he felt something poking him in the stomach. He opened his eyes and, to his horror, realized a member of the dreaded German “SS” was poking him with his rifle.

About an hour later Gene found himself standing between two hardened, machine gun toting fanatics of the “Reichsfuhrer SS” deep in the bowels of an ancient castle facing an interrogation by Heinrich Himmler himself. It was only the beginning of what would prove to be eight harrowing months under the thumb of the Nazi High Command as he would witness carnage, risk his life to save a severely wounded fellow paratrooper, suffer extreme deprivation, be used as slave labor, and eventually escape, only to be recaptured within sight of the snow-capped mountains of Switzerland.
