Abstract:

"Written in 1945 and never published, Yank is a first-person memoir of World War II by an American who joined the British army in 1941." "Ted Ellsworth's memoir begins with his tearful goodbyes to his young wife and family. It covers his Atlantic crossing; his assignment to a tank regiment in North Africa and the campaign there (including a firsthand account of meeting "Monty"); his participation in the invasion of Italy and the second wave of D-Day; incredible accounts of fierce battles, being taken prisoner by the Germans, the horrendous privations in a POW camp, and liberation by Russians; and finally, a year spent wandering eastern Europe at war's end, trying to get home to the U.S. The final pages detail Ellsworth's homecoming, and end with the moment he kisses his wife."--BOOK JACKET.
