Crossing the Sauer

A Memoir of World War II

Book - 2002
Rate this:
This is a tough, vivid, honest and tautly written memoir of advancing through Germany with Patton's Third Army. Join Charley Felix and his Fifth Division mates on a tour of duty with characters worthy of M*A*S*H or Catch-22: raconteur Berseglaria, bombastic Major Pusey, happy-to-be-alive Harry Folenius, hot-headed Hillbilly, and more. We are carried through the terror of the assault platoon, the fatigue of days under constant shelling, and the incoherent madness of life at the front. Felix is writing not of history or (usually) of heroism, but of war at a personal level. By turns hilarious and poignant, grim and inspiring, this book bears the earmarks of a classic.
