Baptism of Fire: Sgt. Smith in the North African Campaign
by Michael Winston
This first volume in the Sgt. Smith WWII trilogy follows a squad of First Infantry Division soldiers to the Tunisian desert of North Africa in their first experience of war. As members of the "Big Red One," the most famous division in the American army, they do battle with Rommel's Africa Corps, as well as the 10th and 21st Panzer Divisions. Based on fact and stories my father told me.
