Patrick O'Donnell has made a career of uncovering the hidden history of World War II
by tracking down and interviewing its most elite troops: the Rangers, Airborne, Marines,
and First Special Service Force, forerunners to America's Special Forces. These
veterans were often the first in and the last out of every conflict, from Guadalcanal and
Burma to the Philippines and the black sands of Iwo Jima. They faced a cruel enemy
willing to try anything, including kamikaze flights and human-guided torpedoes. Over
the course of the war, they had spearheaded D-Day-sized beach assaults, encountered
cannibalism, suffered friendly-fire incidents, and endured torture as prisoners of war. By
at last telling their stories, these men present an unvarnished look at the war on the
ground, a final gift from aging warriors who have already given so much.

Patrick K. O'Donnell is the author of Beyond Valor: World War II's Ranger and Airborne Veterans Reveal the Heart of Combat as well as the creator of The Drop Zone, (www.thedropzone.org), the first virtual community for World War II veterans and the interested public dedicated to collecting and sharing stories of the war

San Francisco's Jeff Riggenbach has narrated more than fifty titles for Blackstone Audiobooks. He is an author, contributing editor, and producer and has worked in radio for the last thirty years. He is a recipient of the "Golden Mike" Award for his work in radio.
