Uncle Ted

A GI's Journal of World War II

by Dr. Barbara M. Panther-Gibby

About The Book

Dr. Barbara M. Panther-Gibby's passion for documenting the lives of family members is only surpassed by her unerring sense of history. In this exciting narrative, she faithfully follows Uncle Ted from the day he was drafted into the army in 1941 to the end of WWII.
During this young GI's tour of duty, he had several assignments. He served as a gunner with the Air Corps in B-17s as well as a fast-truck driver for the Red Ball Express. Unfortunately, in November of 1944, Ted parachuted into the Siegfried Line at the Belgium-German border and found himself in one of the bloodiest battles of the European Theatre of War as soon as he touched ground.
For the next five months, he would chronicle the worst, terror-filled experiences of his life. This is his story, a true reflection of an American GI.
