My Comrades and Me
Staff Sergeant Al Brown’s WWII Memoirs
Author Al Brown, like a few million others, was a civilian one day and a serviceman the next. In My Comrades and Me: Staff Sergeant Al Brown’s WWII Memoirs, he gives readers a glimpse into his life as a soldier and his personal experiences during the Second World War.
In My Comrades and Me, Brown takes readers through basic infantry training where they were drilled to follow the do something, even if it is wrong rule, the longest, loneliest night of his life, his first day in combat on a dark moonless morning, January 22, 1944, when he almost drowned, and more. He also shares his comrades’ stories.
Brown hopes that, with these memoirs, families and descendants of WWII soldiers will find answers to their questions about their soldier’s combat experiences, experiences that soldiers never revealed to their families after their return or because they never returned. Rarely did the combat soldier reveal them in letters home. Sergeant Brown notes that all infantry combat experiences are fundamentally the same. Only the dates and settings are different for different soldiers.
