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.
With the candor, compassion, and wit he is known for, Dole recounts his own odyssey of courage and sacrifice, and also honors the fighting spirit of the countless heroes with whom he served. Drawing on never-before-seen letters between him and his family during this period, Dole offers a powerful, vivid portrait of one man's 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. Heartfelt and inspiring, One Soldier's Story is the World War II chronicle America has been waiting for.
Read by Paul Hecht and Cynthia Darlowe

He was also the Chairman of the National World War II Memorial.From AudioFile:
Listening to Bob Dole's personal story, a sobering reminder of the heroism and sacrifices of American servicemen and women during WWII, is visceral and immediate. Severely injured by enemy fire in Italy, Dole returned home to wage a heroic personal war, finally conquering life-threatening injuries and permanent disabilities. Narrator Paul Hecht follows Dole's career from law school to politics and his distinguished career in the U.S. Senate. Hecht's narration movingly captures Dole's feelings as he relates the saga of the senator's defense of his country and anguishing battle to live a full and meaningful life--although not the one he had planned.
