The Boys' Crusade: American G.I.'s in Europe: Chaos and Fear in World War Two, Fussell, Paul
1 Fussell, Paul The Boys' Crusade: American G.I.'s in Europe: Chaos and Fear in World War Two
UK. Weidenfeld & Nicolson 2004 0297646931 / 9780297646938 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
The Boys' Crusade is a superbly graphic account of the chaos and errors, terror and misery American ground troops in Europe faced in the Second World War. It presents a series of episodes from the arrival of American troops in Britain to their discovery of the concentration camps in early 1945. The experiences of these often very young soldiers was not always unpleasant - they were popular with British women - but after D-Day, it usually was. In its unvarnished truth-telling, this book is a brilliant antidote to military romanticism of every sort. There is light shelf ware to the DJ and the top of the text block is tanned. PLEASE NOTE : International economy shipping to world zones 1 and 2 is by sea and could take up to 90 days to arrive.
