The author’s experiences in training as an infantry replacement and in infantry combat as a soldier private, scout and point man in Normandy, Northern Europe and Germany from mid-July through early October 1944 (when the author was seriously wounded and evacuated to England) with the 30th Infantry Division.
Excellent, sometimes humorous account of what it was really like to be a foot soldier in the months following the Normandy invasion.
Review by Ron Crawley: Regarding How to Survive Combat as a Point Man ... by Thomas E. Street, Mr. Street did an excellent job of capturing his experiences while stationed at Camp Croft, South Carolina, for basic training. I am one of four editors working on a Hub City Writer's Project publication devoted to Spartanburg's (South Carolina) three U.S. military camps, one of which was Camp Croft. I would like to consider using some quotes from How to Survive ... in order to illustrate some of the aspects of basic training. Would you (and Mr. Street) be receptive to this? Our project is a fundraiser for the local Historical Association so we could not offer payment but we can certainly credit your contribution in the book.
