About This Book
My WWII Odyssey describes how one day—December 7, 1941—altered the course of Alban E. Reid Jr.’s life, transforming him from an unconcerned and indifferent youth into a ferociously committed Army officer willing to lay down his life to preserve the liberties he had taken for granted only months earlier.
Dr. Reid takes you from disillusionment to dedication, culminating in the liberation of a sub-camp of the Dachau concentration camp in Germany. The leadership skills he acquired along his path to personal victory over doubt served as a foundation to his success in his chosen field of education. Those with an abiding interest in World War II history and how political upheaval can alter one’s future will want to read this compelling firsthand account.
