I’m No Hero: Story of a WWII Soldier
by Steven E. Weick
About the Book
Growing up, Steven E. Weick heard very short snippets of his father’s time in World War II. But like many veterans, his father never talked much about his harrowing experiences. After graduating high school and joining the Air Force, Weick’s father decided it was time to share with his son more in-depth the journey, small joys, and traumatizing moments from his time in the trenches of WWII.
After his father’s passing in 2012, Weick dove into more research about his father’s unit and scoured through thousands of morning reports, battle narratives, causality reports, after-action reports, and company rosters, resulting in I’m No Hero: Story of a WWII Soldier, a retelling of his father’s experiences in WWII along with historical records to show the everyday life of one solider fighting in one of bloodiest wars in our nation’s, and the world’s, history.
