“The book is an attempt to put the World War II experience from the voice of a storyteller into print,” says Baxter. “It gives the readers a chance to learn about the war from the viewpoint of the average citizen and soldier.”

In his new book, “The Veteran Next Door: Stories from World War II Vol. 1” (published by AuthorHouse), author Randall Baxter presents a collection of stories and memories from both soldiers and civilians who risked their lives for the good of their countries.

“The book is an attempt to put the World War II experience from the voice of a storyteller into print,” says Baxter. “It gives the readers a chance to learn about the war from the viewpoint of the average citizen and soldier.”

“The Veteran Next Door” shares the experiences for soldiers and civilians who witnessed the war firsthand. Baxter interviews a woman who was just two years old when she escaped a terrible fate at Auschwitz and a drifter who found purpose in his life by becoming a marine. The book celebrates the heroic efforts of farmers and scholars who rose to the challenge and left an everlasting mark on the world.    

An excerpt from “The Veteran Next Door”:

“The advance continued across two more rivers, and in mid-February, the Seventy-Sixth Division conquered two fortresses and pushed on to a town called Trier, where they had to charge across a bridge with German soldiers shooting at them on the other side.”
