World War II veteran Robert M. Miller details his experiences as a United States soldier in his new historical memoir “A Necessary Warrior” (published by Trafford Publishing). Miller’s book was recently reviewed satisfactorily by the US Review of Books and is currently being marketed to a wider audience by way of a new press campaign.
“A Necessary Warrior” introduces Miller as a young man who was rejected for service with the United States Navy, but was drafted for service in the Army. Readers come along for his progression through the military during his training in California, Tennessee and New York, until he is shipped in the dead of winter across the North Atlantic to England for additional training.
He served three years as a light tank gunner in the European Theater before being wounded in the Battle of Hurtgen Forest. But shortly thereafter, he rejoined his unit to participate in the final campaign that ended the European phase of the conflict.
Miller’s detailed accounts of military service, coupled with lighter fare, such as anecdotes from his visits to France and Germany, make for a fully encompassing view of life as a WWII soldier. He hopes readers will walk away from his book with a greater understanding of the war from the ground up.
