Abstract:

"Infantry Soldier describes the life of the men assigned to infantry rifle platoons during World War II. Few people realize the enormously disproportionate burden the men in these platoons carried: although only 6 percent of the U.S. Army in Europe, they suffered most of the casualties." "George W. Neill served with a rifle platoon in the 99th Infantry Division. Now a journalist, he takes the reader into the foxholes to reveal how combat infantrymen lived and survived, what they thought, and how they fought."--Jacket.
