The simple sounds of freedom : the true story of the only soldier to fight for both America and the Soviet Union in World War II by Thomas Taylor( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Simple Sounds of Freedom, the true story of the first American paratrooper to land in Normandy and the only soldier to fight for both the United States and the Soviet Union against Nazi Germany." "It is a story of battle, followed by a succession of captures, escapes, recaptures, and re-escapes, then battle once more, in the final months of fighting on the Eastern Front. For these unique experiences, both President Bill Clinton and President Boris Yeltsin honored Joe Beyrle on the fiftieth anniversary of V-E Day." "Beyrle did not strive to be a part of history, but history kept visiting him. Twice before the invasion he parachuted into Normandy, bearing gold for the French resistance. D Day resulted in his capture, and he was mistaken for a German line-crosser - a soldier who had, in fact, died in the attempt. Eventually Joe was held under guard at the American embassy in Moscow, suspected of being a Nazi assassin." "Fingerprints saved him, confirming that he'd been wounded five times, and that he bore a safe-conduct pass written by Marshal Zhukov after the Wehrmacht wrested Joe, at gunpoint, from execution by the Gestapo. In the ruins of Warsaw his life was saved again, this time by Polish nuns. Some of Joe's story is in his own words - a voice that will be among the last and best we hear firsthand from World War II."--Jacket

Lightning in the storm : the 101st Air Assault Division in the Gulf War by Thomas Taylor( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Task Force Normandy's raid, for example, ranks historically with Doolittle's strike on Tokyo but followed two heartbreaking failures: the Son Tay raid to liberate POWs in Vietnam and the debacle of Desert One in Iran. Nothing less than America's military reputation rode with eight Apaches when they were the first to penetrate Iraq's air space. Lightning in the Storm is the first glimpse, from many angles, of the post-Vietnam army in combat - all volunteers and products of new age military thinking. And at the leading edge of this high tech army is the 101st, the only air assault (heliborne) division in the world. Their performance in the desert was truly awesome. So much so that they question whether they are authentically veterans, having lost so few lives in achieving victory so sudden and total it has left them bemused. However the gulf war will be viewed in the annals of history, an illuminating picture will be found in this book of the most futuristic force to sweep over a desert

3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the twentieth century closed, the veterans of its defining war passed away at a rate of a thousand per day. Fortunately, D-Day paratrooper Joseph Beyrle met author Thomas H. Taylor in time to record Behind Hitler's Lines, the true story of the first American paratrooper to land in Normandy and the only soldier to fight for both the United States and the Soviet Union against Nazi Germany. It is a story of battle, followed by a succession of captures, escapes, recaptures, and re-escapes, then battle once more, in the final months of fighting on the Eastern Front. For these unique experiences, both President Bill Clinton and President Boris Yeltsin honored Joe Beyrle on the fiftieth anniversary of V-E Day. Beyrle did not strive to be a part of history, but history kept visiting him. Twice before the invasion he parachuted into Normandy, bearing gold for the French resistance. D Day resulted in his capture, and he was mistaken for a German line-crosser - a soldier who had, in fact, died in the attempt. Eventually Joe was held under guard at the American embassy in Moscow, suspected of being a Nazi assassin. Fingerprints saved him, confirming that he'd been wounded five times, and that he bore a safe-conduct pass written by marshal Zhukov after the Wehrmacht wrested Joe, at gunpoint, from execution by the Gestapo. In the ruins of Warsaw his life was saved again, this time by Polish nuns. Some of Joe's story is in his own words - a voice that will be among the last and best we hear firsthand from World War II
