"In what promises to be one of our country's final World War II memoirs, Bootprints has saved the best for last! Winebrenner and McCoy walk you through the worst imaginable, life along Northern Europe's front lines!" -Rick Bartholomew, "Nam Magazine" "A truly moving tribute, Bootprints speaks for not only one, but for all GI's! ... This fighting man's anthem reminds us that war is the most savage and uncivilized undertaking humanity shall ever endure!" - Ralph M. Knox, author of "The Emperor's Angry Guest" "I couldn't put Bootprints down, finishing it the day I started! ... Experience life in the Army Infantry through Recon Sergeant Hobert Winebrenner's eyes--the destruction he saw, the death and filth he lived with daily, the comradeship and heroism he'll never forget. ... It's a vivid, engrossing account!" - Neil Case, syndicated newspaper columnist "Bootprints marches you into battle with the true heroes of the war, those who won the victory. ... Winebrenner and McCoy tell it like it was--the horror and hell of it all! It's the best book I've ever read about life and death at the front!" - William M. McConahey, author of "Battalion Surgeon"
