The Day the Thunderbird Cried is about heroes and villians, liberators and survivors. A must read for all who believe "those who can't remember the past are doomed to relive it."
"This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in WWII history. In my opinion, it should be a family keepsake for everyone who has a family member that served with the 45th Infantry Division. My father, a proud Thunderbird, wept when he read this long overdue book. He remarked how grateful he felt that someone was able to tell the story he could never talk about. I read the book to better understand my father and I have gained new insight as to what these great men endured during this horrific war."
