Penguin Random House First to Read

First To Read

Just signed up for Penguin Random House First to Read program. I am excited. I am currently reading about the First Special Service Forces. Adleman, Robert H.; Colonel George Walton (1966). The Devil’s Brigade. Philadelphia, PA: Chilton Books. It is an older book but a great look at the First Special Service Force. The unit was just awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in Febuary in Washington, D. C. This unit of 1800 American and Canadian men are the reason the Allies were able to enter Rome a few days before Normandy. If you have not heard of this elite force, can find more information on the Force’s page here.

I am looking forward to reading the Penguin Random House books as soon as I finish The Devil’s Brigade.

My grandfather was a Forceman. He died in 1991.
