Review:

" Exceptional... A worthy addition to vibrant classics of small-unit history like Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers." ( Wall Street Journal)

" Gripping… Kershaw has produced another gem, with vivid combat scenes and an admirable character in the leading role." ( Express)

"A poignant war story that culminates in the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp of Dachau… [A] fast-paced examination of a dedicated officer navigating – and somehow surviving – World War II." ( Washington Post)

Book Description:

Told for the very first time, The Liberator is the remarkable true story of one soldier’s extraordinary journey to World War II victory, from the invasion of Italy to the liberation of Dachau.
