Author
Alex Kershaw 
Summary
<b>The untold&#xa0;story of the bloodiest and most dramatic march to victory of the Second World War.<br /></b>&#xa0;<br />Written with Alex Kershaw's trademark narrative drive and vivid immediacy, <i>The Liberator</i> traces the&#xa0;remarkable battlefield journey of maverick U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks through the Allied liberation of Europe—from the first landing in Italy to the final death throes of the Third Reich.<br /><br />Over five hundred bloody days, Sparks and his infantry unit battled from the beaches of Sicily through the mountains of Italy and&#xa0;France, ultimately enduring bitter and desperate winter combat against the die-hard SS on the Fatherland's borders.&#xa0;Having miraculously&#xa0;survived the long, bloody march across Europe, Sparks was&#xa0;selected to lead a final charge to Bavaria, where he and his men experienced some of the most intense street fighting suffered by Americans in World War II.<br /><br />And when he&#xa0;finally arrived at the gates of Dachau, Sparks confronted scenes that robbed the mind of reason—and put his&#xa0;humanity to&#xa0;the ultimate test.
