Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn the seven-month struggle following D-Day, the Allied forces faced an enemy nearly as deadly as the Axis: lack of supplies for the American lines as they swept west, pushing the Germans out of France and back toward Berlin and defeat. Thus was formed the Red Ball Express, the lifeline which fed the Allied effort to end the bloodbath of World War II. Overwhelmingly manned by African American troops, the soldiers of the Red Ball Express were a unique band of combatants: back home, their loyalties and intelligence were questioned, but in a war that had to be won, their courage and their willingness to fight and die for their country were never in doubt. Master storyteller David L. Robbins spins a searing and powerfully intimate historical novel about these unknown heroes, demonstrating once again that "against a meticulously researched historical background...he captures the human side of people caught up in a give-no-quarter war."
