Recounts Andy Rooney's experiences as a young reporter for Stars and Stripes, the American forces' daily in Europe, including his personal account of and observations on the Paris of the Liberation and entry into Buchenwald. (Biography).

Blackwell North Amer
In 1939, Andrew A. Rooney was a pretty typical twenty-year-old college boy at Colgate University. He played football, was interested in philosophy, thought he wanted to be a writer (but has no idea how to go about becoming one), and felt the America Firsters made pretty good sense. When he read that Hitler had invaded Poland, his first thought was "Where is Brest-Litovsk?" followed quickly by "How can I get out of this?"

I enjoyed this book. Andy Roony isn't exactly Mister Happy, but neither is he full of false patriotism or armchair heroics. I enjoy reading books by WWII veterans whom are quite humble and speak the truth about their experiences. It is the complete opposite of several of the authors whom have written about Iraq and Afghanistan in the past decade.
