Truscott was an American military giant: tough, resourceful, and devoted to the men under his command. Unlike the more flamboyant, high-ranking European field commanders of the time, he was neither arrogant nor in pursuit of personal gloryabut rather a loyal, humble man who led his troops from the front and fought every enemy with a tenacity that made him one of the most respected and revered commanders in the U.S. Army.

But this is above all a story of service and sacrifice by a man who lived for duty, honor, and courageaa man who would become a legend in the annals of World War II.
