To D-Day and Back  Adventures with the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment and Life as a World War II POW: A memoir, Bearden, Bob
1 Bearden, Bob To D-Day and Back Adventures with the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment and Life as a World War II POW: A memoir
Zenith Press/Author 2007 0760332584 / 9780760332580 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Signed by two World War II heros, Bob Bearden on title page and by another 507th infantryman Jim "Pee Wee" Martin. Bob Bearden's To D-Day and Back was not just another paratrooper-themed memoir trying to ride on the success of others. Several distinctions set this work apart from others. Bearden told his story from a very personal angle. Coupled with the use of everyday prose, the book is another one of those works that felt much like storytelling by a member of the family. It is not just another war memoir, but rather, the book told how the war interacted with Bearden's life. n the predawn hours of D-Day, June 6, 1944, Bob Bearden and his comrades in the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment jumped into the inky skies over Normandy. Their mission: defend the west bank of the Merderet River against German counterattack. After long months of training they were finally taking the war to the Germans. Bearden’s time in combat proved shortlived, however, when he was captured on D-plus-2, June 8. This was only the beginning of a new war for his survival through multiple German POW camps, his so-called “liberation” by Russian tanker crews more bent on exacting vengeance upon the Germans than safeguarding Allied prisoners, and the perilous journey that followed, mostly on foot, along the sandy, snow-covered roads of Germany and Poland on the way to Moscow and eventually, back home to Dallas, Texas.(from inside flap) ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 304 pages; Signed by Collection of Signatures
