The World War II Odyssey of the 10th Mountain Division, America's Elite Alpine Warriors, a History Book Talk & Signing
Maurice Isserman is the award-winning author of Fallen Giants, The Other America, and Cronkite's War. He will discuss and sign The Winter Army: The World War II Odyssey of the 10th Mountain Division, America's Elite Alpine Warriors ($28.00 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). This is the epic story of the elite soldiers who broke the last line of German defenses in Italy’s mountains in 1945, spearheading the Allied advance to the Alps and final victory.
Ranging from the ski slopes of Colorado to the towering cliffs of the Italian Alps, The Winter Army is a saga of an unlikely band of soldiers forged in the heat of combat into a brotherhood whose legacy lives on in US mountain fighters to this day.
