A Scout for E Company: 1944 by Daniel Felix


The book is a biography of Gene Wentz, a long-time Bedford County resident. Gene went to Europe, became part of the 36th Infantry Division in 1943 during World War II, and was severely wounded the next spring outside Rome. The book also takes a look at life in basic training, a gut-wrenching trip across the Atlantic, a trip through exotic North Africa, and a slow march up Italy's boot under frigid conditions.

Cost: $15.00 + tax, shipping & handling
