Robert W. Baumer, a graduate of the University of Illinois, has been writing about World War II for twenty years. He is a former columnist for Armchair General and coauthor with Mark Reardon of American Iliad: The 18th Infantry Regiment in World War II (978-0-9717650-5-4).
"Baumer's outstanding new examination of 'Bloody Aachen' details all of the horrific October 2-21, 1944 battle fought by GIs to capture the first major German city in World War II's European Theater....The author describes how GIs endured, then triumphed, in the 'brutal fields of death' created by the street-to-street, building-to-building urban combat."--Jerry D.
