Surviving is Such a Joy: A Memoir

About the Book

In this memoir spanning nearly 90 years, Tony De Angelis recounts the many unusual events that make his life unique. De Angelis grew up in Rochester, New York during the Great Depression, and his adolescence was greatly shaped by the drastic global shift caused by World War II. Inspired by the brave American heroes that fought during WWII, and with a strong desire to make a difference himself, De Angelis joined the Army when he was just a teenager, eventually serving in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars. During the Cold War, De Angelis found himself engaged directly in tracking Soviet intelligence, leading him all over the world and allowing him to meet incredible individuals.

    Surviving is such a joy: a memoir

    Posted by Jim D on Sep 15th 2023

    Great book! It progresses well through the mindset of those who went through the great depression and how it shaped his character. From a kid who had to scratch and claw for everything to a successful diplomat and spy for the US. Interesting perspective.
