THE STORY OF A SOLDIER: The Airborne Spirit. Recollections of Colonel Edward S. Mehosky from training in OCS and with the 506th Airborne (Currahee), through D-DAY as the 506th drew its first blood. -SOLD OUT--

Click to EnlargeTHE STORY OF A SOLDIER: The Airborne Spirit and Recollections of Colonel Edward S. Mehosky (RET.) U.S. Army, Infantry. 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. --SORRY, SOLD OUT-- "This is a book you will want to read! How can one adequately express his feelings about our first leader, Edward Mehosky, and the role he played in turning me and the men in our platoon, from clueless recruits into combat survivors? He was as much an architect of attitude as he was a teacher of tactics and if the 1st Platoon "H" Company, 506th became an effective fighting unit from Normandy onward, it is to his credit that he made us so..."___Mario (Hank) DiCarlo, Former Sgt., 1st Platoon, "H" Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division "Colonel Mehosky was blessed with the traits of leadership. He instinctively knew how to hone and harness those skills to their maximum. He demanded much of himself. He was a fierce disciplinarian that addressed his own preparation for warfare. As a commander and trainer of men for combat, he was tough and demanding. Not because he was mean spirited, but because he knew that the most kind and compassionate thing that a commander can do is to make sure that everything possible has been done to prepare his people for the inevitable harshness of the battlefield. A well-trained soldier has the best opportunity for survival and success on the battlefield. Colonel Mehosky's conscience and understanding of this truism drove him to insure that his soldiers went out with the best preparation that could be given. This book is more than a loving tribute by a son who loves and respects his father. It is a needed voice for every freedom-loving person. War is not a glorious thing; it is a gory thing. War is costly and destructive to human life and property. Yet to do nothing to address unrestrained greed and the abuse of power over others is a far more costly and destructive approach. Colonel Mehosky and others who faithfully shared their profession understood that alternative. Read this book, you will like it."___Jack C. Randles, Chaplain (Colonel), USA, Retired "Some things in the army should never change, such as the leadership qualities and emphasis on the preparedness embodied in Col. Mehosky. They are what will carry over into the next conflict and will sustain us. Military men and history buffs alike will not want to miss reading this book!"___Emmet Rodifer, Jr., History Enthusiast
