When Ralph Hauenstein became a reserve officer, he thought the skills he'd gained as a newspaperman might be useful. Indeed, he spent World War II gathering information from sources as diverse as solders reluctantly reporting on one another and code books pulled from downed German planes. Donald Markle shapes Ralph Hauenstein's remembrances into an informative, entertaining book that will spark debate among history buffs.
The story of Colonel Hauenstein's war is also the story of the European Theater of U.S. Operations, the American command of General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who spun between ETOUSA and his international position at Allied headquarters, SHAEF, with dizzying speed. SHAEF dominates histories of the time; ETOUSA is comparatively little studied and understood, but as Hauenstein explains, it was a major factor in the Allied victory in Europe. Complete with maps and photographs.
