From the day he enters basic training until he endures a cold German winter and makes his escape from enemy territory, Pvt. Frederick Scheer survives on little more than his good instincts, his quick thinking, and his calm and amiable nature. His is more than the usual World War II memoir. A European Sojourn is a coming-of-age story told with clarity, realism, honesty and humor.
