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 )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 534 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."--BOOK JACKET
Lightning in the storm : the 101st Air Assault Division in the Gulf War by Thomas Taylor( Book )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Air Force and armor were the thunder of Desert Storm," said Gen. Schwarzkopf, "while the 101st was the lightning." This is the story of the Screaming Eagles - the hell-bent, heliborne soldiers of the 101st who hurled the lightning bolts. The first one struck to begin the air war, a daring night raid which punched a hole in Iraq's radar fence for allied bombers to light up the sky over Baghdad on January 17, 1991. This white knuckle raid was recorded from beginning to end through the pilots' infrared cameras. Actual dialogue from the tapes provides a chapter of fascinating authenticity

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.
