SPEARHEAD_Cover.jpg

With humanity and visceral scenes of combat, WWII memoir does battle with the best in the genre.

Written by Jenn Thornton

From the author of A Higher Call comes a riveting account about the young crew of a tank—including tank gunner Clarence Smoyer—in the legendary 3rdArmored Division (“Spearhead”). Makos employs the tone of a true storyteller to a military adventure that is at once exciting and poignant. From the Armor Ambush at Mons to the Battle of the Bulge, this book is one big battle royale—and a moving tribute to the everyday soldier in extraordinary circumstances.
