One Soldier's Story

Description:
Before he became one of America's most respected statesmen, Bob Dole was an average citizen serving heroically for his country. The bravery he showed after suffering near-fatal injuries in the final days of World War II is the stuff of legend. Now, for the first time in his own words, Dole tells the moving story of his harrowing experience on and off the battlefield, and how it changed his life. Dole was a twenty-one year old soldier from Russell, Kansas, entrusted to lead a platoon of men in the famed 10th Mountain Division. Trying to pull his radioman to safety during a battle against a fortified German position in the mountains of Italy, Dole was hit by enemy fire in his right shoulder and back. Over the next three years, he lapsed in and out of consciousness, lost a kidney, and lost the use of his right arm and most of the feeling in his left arm. But he willed himself to live. Dole recounts his own odyssey of courage and sacrifice, and also honors the fighting spirit of the countless heroes with whom he served, including two fellow injured soldiers who later joined him in the Senate. Drawing on nearly three hundred never-before-seen letters between him and his family during this period, Dole offers a portrait of one mans struggle to survive in the closing moments of the war. He speaks here not as a politician but as a wounded G.I. who overcame the longest odds to rebuild his life.-Dust jacket.
