From Farm to Front:  An Innocent Goes to War, 1942-1946, by Lawrence E. Breeze

Dr. Larry Breeze has written a compelling account of his transformation from a youthful and innocent Missouri farm boy in 1942 to an experienced and serious veteran by the end of 1945.  Here professor Breeze takes us with him as he moved from the innocence of his world in Lock Springs and Sampsel, Missouri, to the fear, cold and brutality of the Battle of the Bulge.  It was a traumatic experience, and with the keen insight of the professional historian he became, Larry Breeze helps readers understand the transformation of so many American farm boys into the tough infantrymen who won WWII.
